TikTok's new Rising Voices incubator project will train, educate and support 100 black creators on how to make the best use of TikTok and create high-quality content. It will also include career-building resources and necessary digital skills training from prominent industry experts.
TikTok, a popular global video sharing platform, will train 100 black creators in South Africa how to create high-quality content that can be monetized, a statement from the company said.
The training is part of Rising Voices, an incubator project that will also include career-building resources and necessary digital skills training from prominent industry experts. The six-weeks program will also teach the creators to master their craft, personal branding, monetising their account, and the importance of content catering to a diverse audience.
The initiative is a partnership between TikTok and the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF), an agency of the South African Department of Arts and Culture.
"Through this initiative, TikTok will empower these creators to thrive on our platform and beyond, as we aim to provide them with career-building resources and programs," -statement
