Thanks to a partnership between French animation school Rubika and the Africa Digital Media Institute (ADMI), future international courses in digital animation and video games will open the doors to digital employment for African talent, allowing them to flourish in a creative industry that knows no borders.

It’s nine o’clock in the morning, in the heart of Nairobi’s business center. Five hundred students from all over East Africa attend classes in the Africa Digital Media Institute (ADMI). Formerly known as Jamhuri, Swahili for “independence”, this school was created in 2012 to provide young creators with high-level expertise in the visual arts, thus opening doors to an international market.

Today, the ADMI joins forces with the French animation school Rubika and the French Development Agency (AFD) to establish two world-class programs in the creative professions: an intensive one-year course in 2D animation and a bachelor’s degree in video game design and development. With an 800,000-Euro grant, the funding will allow an exchange of expertise between the two schools, as well as the provision of the latest equipment and software, which will allow students to acquire the necessary skills.
