Plain Sheet Workshop
Here is a fun and creative activity the family can partake in this weekend; creating art from plain sheets. What comes to your mind first when you see a plain sheet of paper? Endless possibilities or a space of nothingness? Creating something out of the ordinary is quite thrilling! It leaves us amazed at the wonder of creativity. The world in all its intricacies was made out of void. Seeing through this lens, you will never want inspiration for your creative endeavor. Infinite potential leads to infinite rumination or inaction.
This event is taking place on Saturday, March 13th at Mbari Uno (House of Collaboration), 10C Ladoke Akintola Street, Ikeja GRA, Lagos. Register HERE

This is a screening exhibition hosted by screen out loud, in collaboration with the Institut français and Alliance Française Lagos. In a small town in Senegal, two brothers clash over the marriage of their children. Two visions of the world clash, one moderate, the other radical. Young Nafi and Tokara dream of going to study in Dakar, the capital, and of living with their times. Like a tragedy, and when the extremist threat imposes itself, lovers must find a way to free themselves from the conflicts of adults. The paced family drama is Senegal’s submission to the 2021 Academy Awards (Best International Film).
