Nigeria Cultivates Next Generation of Storytellers Through Ghetto Film School

Honorable Minister of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, Barr. Hannatu Musa Musawa, recently visited the acclaimed Ghetto Film School (GFS) in Los Angeles. This trip aligned with her mandate to create opportunities for young Nigerian creatives to develop their talents globally.

During her visit, Minister Musawa reviewed films made by GFS fellows, including promising young Nigerian filmmakers, at the prestigious Huntington Library and Art Museum. GFS provides multi-year visual storytelling training to help underserved youth succeed in creative careers.

By connecting with programs like GFS, Minister Musawa seeks to empower the next generation of Nigerian filmmakers, animators, and digital artists. Initiatives that hone their technical skills and storytelling abilities will enable Nigeria’s talented youth to share their unique perspectives with the world.

Creative collaborations with international arts institutions allow Nigeria to nurture its youth as cultural ambassadors and creators. By investing in their artistic development, Nigeria strengthens its creative capital as a pillar of sustainable growth. The Honorable Minister remains committed to positioning Nigerian storytellers for global impact through such strategic partnerships.
