Leading educational and recreational organisation, Terra Kulture, has received a financial donation from a global streaming platform, Netflix.
In a statement sent to Sunday Scoop, the Lagos-based firm said the donation follows the recent announcement by Netflix to extend the Creative Equity Scholarship Fund for film and television students to select West and Central African countries to study at partner universities in Nigeria, Ghana, Benin and Gabon.
The donation received will further the organisation’s effort to promote the richness and diversity of the Nigerian arts and culture sector.
Speaking on the philanthropic gesture, the Chief Executive Officer of Terra Kulture, Bolanle Austen-Peters, said, “We are delighted to receive this donation from Netflix. It would be helpful to take our ongoing projects to the next step.
“Over these years, we have developed an in-depth understanding of arts, culture, and languages to impact the next generation most effectively. With the financial support received, Terra Kulture Academy for the Arts aims to fulfil its mission to support, upskill and inspire Nigeria’s creative youths through educational and recreational programmes that will yield benefits to themselves, their families, communities, and the overall Nigerian creative economy.”
The programme, which is free for attendees, is designed to provide training on key technical production skills for the creative industry as well as an entrepreneurial module for students to learn about the industry’s business side.
