Creative Lagos Symposium: Sustaining the Future of Creativity

Join us for a one-day symposium organized in partnership with Pidgin Perfect titled Lagos: Sustaining the Future of Creativity which will take place at the African Centre 66 Great Suffolk Street, SE1 0BL, London on the 11th of August 2016.
This event is about discussing how creative spaces in Lagos can ensure more sustainable models in order to support future creative practices. The objective is to gather ideas and examples in a series of themed panel discussions around best practice from the UK and then start to re-contextualize them for a Lagos-specific context.
