Tshimologong has announced that applications are now open for the fifth edition of the Digital Lab Africa (DLA), a mentorship and incubation program for African creatives in innovative and digital content, are now open. The accelerator programme is open to artists, producers, designers, collectives, students or entrepreneurs from both creative and cultural industries across Africa.
DLA looks to incubate emerging talent by offering them a springboard to jump-start and accelerate their projects with the support and expertise of the DLA ecosystem.
“Each year the level innovation in terms of form, storytelling, content and technologies gets better. We expect DLA#5 to once again exceed our expectations and look forward to receiving quality applications," said Lesley Donna Williams, Chief Executive of the Tshimologong Precinct.
Williams also added that DLA applications reflect the vitality and uniqueness of the African continent in the field of digital cultures and new technologies.
In 2020, DLA received more than 500 applications from over 32 countries. For its fifth edition, Digital Lab Africa is switching to a fully online format. The incubation and mentorship programs followed by the DLA#5 laureates will include online activities, online mentorship, and participation in online industry events.
