Live Streamed Panel
In a panel led by Digital Lab Africa, key personalities of the cultural and creative industries (VR, animation, music, video games, digital art) share their experience and analysis on how COVID-19 recently impacted digital creation in their respective fields, and their vision of the new way forward for digital creatives given this new context.
In this panel we ask: What survival mechanisms were put in place? Where did the digital creative industries lose momentum or was this a boost for existing digital work? What measures and innovation were taken to engage creative teams and productions remotely?
