The Usanii Exhibition, Lagos
So, in our last post we mentioned had something exciting in the works. Here goes; Usanii is pleased to announce the Maiden Edition of her Exhibition in Lagos, taking place on the 12th and 13th of August, 2016 at The British Council office in Ikoyi. The exhibition will serve as an enabling tool for the exhibiting Artists to showcase masterpieces to a selected audience, illustrating a range of subjects, uniquely captured through each Artist’s personal interpretation of the day-to-day life faced by every Nigerian. The exhibition will also serve as an interactive experimental space. With an ethos to developing the communities in which we all live in, we have pledged to donate part of the proceeds from this exhibition to Mamamoni; an organization who since its 3 years in existence have created notable impact in rural and urban slum communities. Mamamoni continues to empower poor women living in these communities by providing them with different vocational skills and post-training support to help them generate livelihood income to feed, educate and sustain themselves and their children. Till date, 4,000 women have benefited from this free training with countless success stories.
We are incredibly happy to have bagged ourselves the following partners who share the same sentiments as us; The British Council, Pulse, Mamamoni, and The Guardian Nigeria.
As much as we would love to have as many people attend, this event will be an invite only Exhibition due to demand and Exhibition space. We however, encourage you to indicate your interest to attend or support however you feel by getting in touch with us: email@example.com; 0818–160–8844.
