Kenya Film Classification Board(KFCB), through its Sinema Mashinani program, has partnered with MultiChoice to establish Talent Resource Centres across the country with the view to create talent nurturing facilities for youth in the creative economy.

The initiative will see Talent Resource Centres established in 5 constituencies namely Mathare, Gatundu North, Gatanga, Ndia and Dagoretti.

The gist of the partnership is to have the centers kitted with various levels of equipment, ranging from basic, intermediary to professional. This will enable community-based talent identification and nurturing to be fast-tracked.

The equipment to be installed includes cameras, sound and light equipment, costumes, recording equipment among others.

On Wednesday 25th September 2019, Mathare MP Anthony Oluoch will lead a team from KFCB, KBC, and MultiChoice on a sightseeing tour of a location that he has identified as one of the places to have a Resource Center.

The tour is expected to enable technical teams from said organizations to determine the scope of work that needs to be done in order to have it up and running in the shortest time possible.
