WHAT IS BIG 60?
BIG 60 is an annual 'pop up' culture and lifestyle event by A Whitespace Creative Agency (AWCA) - an event which explores various themes of artistic and culinary creativity. This showcase is hosted annually at A Whitespace Lagos, with a unique theme underlining the event activities for each year.

About this year's' Big60: Crossing Borders

This year, the installation which is themed Crossing Borders is a continuation from last years' celebration which took place in Lagos December of 2015. In partnership with the British Council's' UK-NG festival and The African Centre we will be taking the installation to London from August 8th - 14th 2016 Crossing Border intends to stimulate cultural exchange, intercultural dialogue and understanding as well as encourage the supply of high artistic input from both Nigeria and the UK to facilitate cultural, social and economic gains.

Scheduled to take place across two international cities - Lagos and London, the first installment happened in December last year at A Whitespace Lagos from 5th to 31st of December 2015 and the second installment will now take place at The Africa Centre in London from August 8th - 14th 2016
