CS Namwamba emphasized that the National Creatives Economy Plan’s implementation frameworks and trustworthy methods for the efficient and accountable collection and distribution of royalties to all creatives must come from the Creatives Technical Committee.
The committee will also oversee the National Creatives Awards (Kenyan Grammys) and use the internet to find, recognize, develop, and promote talent.
In order to increase employment opportunities and support Kenya’s economic development, it will also establish a strong framework for the monetization of the creative sector. It will also provide guidance on the Masterplan for raising infrastructure and arts facilities across the entire nation to international standards.
The team will also create a framework to establish and market Kenya as a premier location for film production, as well as think about and suggest legislative and regulatory measures for the expansion of the Creative Economy.
