Creative Industries in the digital age


The Goethe-Institut in Pakistan and Karachi University’s Department of Visual Studies have partnered to offer the programme DigiKara to a select group of aspiring and emerging young innovators in the fields of creative and digital industries.

The objective of the Digikara program is to support the professional development of emerging and aspiring young people in the creative sectors by providing tools, network and skills to actively participate in the developing creative industry of Pakistan. Pakistan is on the threshold of a digital society. The young generation is tech-savvy, has visions and high potential. In the near future more and more jobs will arise in creative digital industries.
 
DigiKara addresses a unique opportunity for creative, young people to be actively engaged in Pakistan’s quickly developing digital and creative sectors by bridging the gap between academic education and actual participation in the creative industry, to grasp the huge potential to be more visible, respected, and economically contributing.
 
A workshop series spanning between July and October 2019 will cover a range of topics to strengthen the knowledge and capacity of the participants to build their entrepreneurial spirit and provide tools towards a greater range of opportunities within the creative industries. Through training, mentoring, project and team work, this programme will also help creative young people to connect with new audiences and societal needs.
