My CEDITRAA story
“Before and during my field work in Lagos I experienced the immense benefits of digitization within the Nigerian media industries. This additional interface opens indefinite spaces for creatives or cultural entrepreneurs and for researchers as well. CEDITRAA bundles many disciplines to explore the processes of digitization within African and Asian contexts and with that embodies the relevance of these processes for all disciplines involved. The exchange of methods within the project has already enriched my approaches towards the field and my work. I am keen on applying these enriched approaches to my work within digital, local, and global African spaces and to contribute to the larger interdisciplinary context of research on cultural entrepreneurship and digitization.”
