The programme will take a three-pronged approach to developing the sector based on destinations, activities and electronic entertainment.
Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority has launched a new initiative ‘Happiness Creators’, the first-ever entertainment fellowship programme to boost the country’s entertainment sector.
The programme consists of three tracks, including Entertainment Events, Entertainment Destinations, and Electronic Entertainment. The registration for the three tracks is available on the website, the authority said while noting that the application deadline is different for each track.
Participants in the fellowship programme, which runs for between six and eight months, will work with universities and entertainment companies around the world and have the opportunity to earn globally recognised qualifications.
The Entertainment Events track includes the functions of organisation, coordination and implementation, in addition to designing events for various target groups, and carry out the work of its operation and management.
The Entertainment Destinations track’s objective is activating entertainment experiences, managing and operating the sites and their visitors. While the Electronic Entertainment track is concerned with designing the events of the games, coordinating and operating competitions, tournaments and game exhibitions.
The programme seeks to provide the trainees with the latest mechanisms used in organising and coordinating local and international entertainments and music festivals. The trainees will also receive globally-recognized certificates and licenses in the entertainment sector in its various fields.
During the programme, the trainees will be provided with accommodation, travel and transportation expenses to enable them to devote themselves and take full advantage of the training materials included in the programme in all its tracks.
