Date: Sat, August 3, 2019 | Time: 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM | Location: The Brook Hub, 56b Adeola Odeku Street, Victoria Island Lagos | Source
Words Unspoken is a biennial experience where Poetry and Music meet with the Gospel at the centre. From the first installment in 2015, which held me at the University of Benin, the gathering has grown louder and stronger. What started as a gathering of talented Jesus-lovers, ended with amazing testimonies and changed destinies.
In 2017, the second instalment came to the Centre of Excellence and held at “The Brook Hub” bringing with it even more acts and deeper revelations than the first. In line with his character of undoing stereotypes and doing the ‘impossible’, the covener-Mr. Graham Garrick, intends to put an amazing crowd-funded experience for the third instalment of the show.
The theme for Words Unspoken 2019 is BARE and Admission is Free! However, you can make contributions toward the event by donating via this link
