No fewer than 2,000 Nigerian youths have graduated from the Terra Academy For The Arts (TAFTA), having studied scriptwriting, stage lightening and more.
Mrs Bolanle Austen-Peters, founder of Terra Kulture and TAFTA, during TAFTA maiden graduation ceremony in Lagos, emphasied the need to invest in knowledge acquisition for the youth.
She said that the six weeks online training was spurred by her interest in exploring creativity, to create wealth and her belief in potential of younger generation.
Austen-Peters said that the training was done in collaboration with Mastercard Foundation and was entirely free for the beneficiaries.
According to her, the goal of the Academy is to have 65,000 young people trained in the creative space within five years.
