Culturati Academy management announced on Sunday that plans have been made to empower young creatives across Africa, especially Nigerians, with an investment plan.

According to the management, the academy will introduce an investment plan for creative, dedicated and focused graduates who are ready to unleash their entrepreneurial journey.

The academy’s founder, Idris Aregbe, explained in a statement that the scheme is designed to help young creatives make meaningful contributions to the country’s development.

“This scheme has been set up to fund academy graduates who enter their profession, with the ultimate goal of identifying, developing and equipping creative talents among young people to make them productive economic agents and financially independent, thus helping them create meaningful contribute to the economic development of their communities,” he said.

He continued: “The time young people waste before and even after college, which is usually exploited by vices, can be eliminated through a concerted effort to strategically position the creative industries to absorb their creative energies.

“While it takes at least four years to earn a college degree, and possibly more years to get a job, in less than one year young people can become vibrant economic agents and make a positive contribution to the economy with a dynamic creative industry. With economic power, they can pay their school fees and study much more easily. The positive ripple effects are just huge.”

When announcing the start of registration for the intakes for the professional year 2022, Aregbe insisted that the session will offer different courses from August to September 2022.

He listed the offerings including modeling, fashion design, makeup, arts and crafts, catering and mixology, tourism, furniture/upholstery, leatherworking, hair styling, content creation, and other free courses.

Others, which he said are technical courses, include software engineering, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, custom web development, product management and product design (UI/UX) at Culturati Tech Academy.

“The rationale behind Culturati Academy is essentially on exploring how the strong capabilities of African youth can be modulated and accelerated on the back of culture towards socio-economic development,” said Aregbe.
