2020 Projects

We have 3 initiatives that are great undertakings and we hope that they will change the way we interact and preserve our culture and professional practice as creatives.

Coined out of Buchi Emecheta's 'Second Class Citizen,' the One Room Mansion is the idea of a one-stop-shop for creatives. This initiative fosters a safe space for multi-disciplinary creatives to thrive. In 2020, we are offering workshops, masterclasses, brand clinics and guest lectures tailored to creatives, boosting their credibility and championing professional practice in multi-disciplinary creative fields.

This 5-day event showcases indigenous tastemakers in Nigeria. It is packed full of exciting narratives and preserved customary practices. We will sweep through the ancient craftsmanship and curate a truly dynamic experience come September 2020. The theme of our flagship event is 'The Makers.' Stay tuned for more.

400 years after the Transatlantic Slave Trade, we are going back through the human trade routes to connect the dots and balance dialogue commonly glossed over. This project has been a long time coming and it is the legacy we are leaving to a generation of inquisitive scholars brave enough to ask the right questions and seek knowledge that has been otherwise hidden in plain sight.


Endless Possibilities

Each initiative starting in 2020 aims to create cultural ambassadors and aficionados across Lagos, Nigeria and the diaspora. Empowering inquisitive minds is our thing and we truly believe that each undertaking will shape the cultural landscape of Nigeria.
