Stats, facts and figures. A lot has been happening in Kenyas Creative economy in the last few years and as we garner a name as well as positions ourselves in creative fields  we need to know as Kenyan Creatives  – Where Are We going?

Is the Creative Industry in Kenya as fragmented as it looks? Where are the societies, associations and groups that can galvanise different sectors together? What are the common challenges we all face and how can we counter these? What Industry projects are there that we should know about and support?
