The Digital Media Incubator in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, the Jenga CCI and the GIZ are launching a call for applications. The Incubator program aims to mentor future digital artists to create and distribute their work to an online audience.
As the pandemic has accelerated digital adoption and shifted audiences to digital platforms, this presents high market potential for your music, podcast, or animated content.
The Digital Media Incubator invites podcasters, music artists, 2D animators, music producers and sound engineers who want to be part of the agenda for new markets and opportunities in the digital economy.
This 6-month part-time program will incubate 60 participants in total and will include one-on-one sessions, masterclasses and peer mentoring forums. Participants will also have the chance to collaborate with other artists to produce at least one cultural product that will be published online.
All incubator participants will also receive a living wage allowance.
During the selection, preference will be given to the candidates most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications are only open to Kenyan citizens and residents.
Music production and sound engineering incubator
Participants will join with 15 producers to create fresh and disruptive new sounds that will engage audiences online. Participants will then be matched with a musical artist in the incubator and together they will create their first single. Sound engineering candidates will also support podcasters and musical artists during their live performances at the end of the project.
