NECLive Series goes to Freedom Park
As practitioners and stakeholders in the showbiz industry preparefor the 2016 edition of Nigerian Entertainment Conference (NEC), organisers have announced the inaugural mini workshop titled NECLive series, which will hold conversation with celebrities on Friday, November 6, 2015, at the Freedom Park, Broad Street (Gate 4 entrance) Lagos Island.
Notable industry personalities expected to take part in the session organized in collaboration with the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) include Olisa Adibua, Toni Kan, Jahman Anikulapo, Victor Akande and Yaw. There will also be sessions with Yetunde Babaeko, Tunde Laoye, Chris Ihidero, Femi Falodun, Olori Supergal and many more.
Shedding light on the need for the introduction of ‘NECLive series’ and its agenda, TheNetNG publisher and NECLive chairman Ayeni Adekunle recently commented,
“NECLive Series is a platform for enhancing cooperation and increasing knowledge within the Nigerian creative industry. It was created in response to the recurring problem of limited capacity building in the industry, which was identified at the past three editions of the Nigerian Entertainment Conference. The goal is to bridge identifiable gaps in the creative sector, and in so doing advance the agenda of CORA and NEC to support the industry in Nigeria.”
Lead sessions at the inaugural NECLive Series include a Masterclass titled Power of Photography – Pictures in A New Age and panel conversations titled Protecting Intellectual Property and Bridging Pathways to the Creative Industry of Our Dreams.
Objectives for NECLive Series include skill enhancement for industry practitioners, provision of opportunities for related conversations, dissemination of new knowledge, practical demonstration by experts and networking.
Convened annually since 2013 by Nigerian Entertainment Today (NET), the industry’s leading content platform, NECLive serves as a platform for discussing challenges, exchanging ideas and setting the agenda for the entertainment industry in Nigeria. NECLive Series is a spin-off from the broader conference, which held in April 2015.
