Art Exhibition

All Day (Day 1-4) Monday 22nd - Thursday 25th June 2015

The Waterfront

Art Exhibition

The art exhibition is one of the major side events of the conference. Art allows individuals to express themselves and hence was added as a side programme to highlight the importance of art and other extracurricular activities as tools to promote inclusion in today’s society.


Working alongside Lagos Photo and leading Nigerian artists the exhibition will feature original works and prints which will be available for sale directly and through an auction to raise funds for various projects to improve the lives of Persons with Disabilities.

The talk on “The Rising Value of Nigerian Art” to be presented by Oliver Enwonwu during the Gala Night will hopefully create a paradigm shift in encouraging Persons with Disabilities to pursue career paths in the arts.

His works are highly sort after with particular interest in oils, Pastel, Pencil and Charcoal sketches.

I have never been a proponent of being consumed in a particular style. I love good art works, but most especially, the human figure fascinates me a great deal. Body movement, facial expression and most especially the essence of our being.
