University of Lagos (UNILAG) Workshops

 

In collaboration with the Woman and Youth Arts Foundation, I facilitated a multi-faceted workshop that included collaborative creation of artifacts, celebrations, public art installations, and digital documentation to foster new connections and build community. Participants were from the University of Lagos community and modeled inherently transformative ideas about what the practice of art can be, its societal benefits, and how it can be a force for personal discovery and mutual understanding. Through the exploration of progressive educational philosophies, innovative democratic theory, and diverse contemplative exercises participants reflected upon personal identity within their communities and created public artworks and a community celebration that expressed a variety of cultural and aesthetic positions.
