Who is an African Creator? Our podcast defines it as someone who is African and uses their creative talents to amplify progressive African narratives to the world, inclusive of all Africans.

The vibrant global creative economy is a sustainable career path for millions of Africans to tell their stories. In this episode of 'The African Creator,' we explore the various ways creators can amplify the stories they tell and effectively monetize. We'll also discuss how to leverage the multiverse and metaverse to tell our stories.

CONNECTING WITH GEN-Z: PATHWAYS & POSSIBILITIES OF WHAT PURPOSE-LED TEENAGERS IN AFRICA CAN CREATE

Society is continuously evolving at an exponential rate. Gen-Z (youth aged 9-24 years) face a lot of pressure that many parents didn't experience growing up. Some of these pressures stem from self-esteem issues, academic or professional career-path stress, bullying, depression, cyber addiction, and anxiety over friendships and relationships. As algorithms increasingly choose what we watch, listen to, or whose opinion we hear on social media and other digital platforms, the fundamental questions of ‘Who am I?’ ‘What do I want to do?’ ‘What do I stand for?’ ‘How can I contribute to something bigger than myself?’ are increasingly challenging to define. Parents of teens are often focused on kids’ academics, and general welfare while overlooking their health, social and emotional learning, creative endeavours, and transition to work. What used to work on the path towards ‘success,’ often gets imposed on our youth, without truly understanding the information, innovation, and pathways to the possibility that exist ahead of them.

Our Gen-Z kids on this continent are brilliant and motivated. When our youth have ideas and are ready to work for change, how do we build their mindset, resilience, self-esteem, and habits to carry them forward? How do we empower them to speak their truth, share their voice, and contribute meaningfully to this ever-changing world? We've seen where traditional paths of success and the pressure to achieve have taken over and have left many youths more lost, dazed, and confused, than ever. If we provide them 'with the best,' that can potentially lead to entitlement, inertia, and an overall lack of direction. This podcast episode will talk about how we can support Gen-Z to build the life skills necessary to deliberately decide the impact they want to make on the world around them and to lead with courage and empathy. We will first define the challenges facing our youth and future leaders today, and then talk about nurturing self-awareness, world-awareness, and purpose-driven action - as parents, teachers, bosses, coaches, mentors, peers, and leaders.

ABOUT LUMINATION-Z
Lumination-Z is a purpose-centric thought leadership content platform and community for adolescents on the African continent aged 13 to 19 years. We are committed to building a generation of purpose-driven leaders that will be equipped with the mindset, skill-sets, and emotional intelligence to make sure the continent of Africa prospers. Our content and experiences include social media platforms, podcasts, workshops, events, immersive experiences, and resources targeted to Gen-Z. We are building a nation of bright lights and we’re starting early!

Young people deal with several challenges when it comes to professional and creative work: they are interested in everything but committed to nothing, and they have learned multiple skills but struggle with deploying them with intention and strategy.

In this live episode of 'The Young God' Podcast, we'll bring to the fore the age-old struggle between being a specialist or a multi-potentialite, while making the case for the latter being a vehicle for progress -- large scale social change and personal financial freedom.

Diverse and niche opportunities exist for those that are able to mix, match, and master a set of skills. Creatives today need to embrace the multi-hyphenate mindset in order to open up unprecedented doors, make deeper connections personally and professionally, and thrive in this highly competitive world.

Our guest will share their perspective and best practice on how they navigate their different interests and purists. Attendees will have the opportunity to join the conversations as well.

Many creators and brands want to host their podcasts but face several limitations to launching like proper ideation, production, scriptwriting and technical qualities like audio engineering and distribution. Existing alternatives such as Anchor do not provide professional and customised offerings.

This workshop focuses on how promising and amateur podcasters can take a DIY approach in planning and launching their podcasts. We will cover every step of the process (scriptwriting, recording, editing, distribution, marketing) with visual references and a live demo.
