When creativity speaks, new business opportunities and positive societal changes emerge. The creative and cultural industry is a vital force for growth both in itself and in society.
Sweden@Kenya is a forum for Swedish and Kenyan entrepreneurs within creative and cultural industries. Through discussions, masterclasses and studio work, the forum focuses on the economic potential of innovation, digitalisation and creativity. Built on the two countries’ expertise and experience, the Sweden@Kenya platform aims to explore the economical and societal potential of the creative sector and provide an exchange of knowledge and ideas.
The forum will address issues such as how to unify the voice of the sector, how to identify and create effective collaborations, and the role of the creative and cultural sector in a complex, digitalised and interlinked world where ideas, values and visions are needed. Sweden@Kenya aims to bring tangible results in terms of intellectual inspiration, new contacts and networks, business opportunities as well as strengthened bilateral cooperation and exchanges between Sweden and Kenya.
Sweden@Kenya has a cross-disciplinary approach uniting creative industries, the private sector (business), education and policy for problem-solving and innovation. Sustainability and digitalisation are paramount and will be taken into consideration at all times.
