harness the power of digital arts and technology.
Audiences will experience talks, workshops and presentations on animation, comic art,
monetizing digital art and more. These will be conducted by influential digital artists, arts
managers and experts such as Jide Martin of Comic Republic (Nigeria), Pious Nyenyewa of
Alula Animation (Zimbabwe), Blahtee Muchemwa of Blah Entertainment (South Africa) and more. The event will be hosted by Bill Masuku (creator of Razor Man and Captain South Africa).
