Welcome to the Month of March-3.03.2016

Happy Birthday, Uncle Tunde Kelani.

Now, welcome to the month of March. Today is actually 3.03. 2016, quite interesting, don’t you think so? You will agree with me that the month of February was indeed a vibrant one for art lovers and creative practitioners.

Apart from the different shows, workshops and exhibitions that characterised the Leap month, it was also a very special month for art practitioners especially those in the film industry as we all gathered at the rooftop of the City Hall to celebrate the 68th birthday of a Guru in the film industry, Uncle. Tunde Kelani, popularly called T.A. curtsy of the Goethe Institute.

The Goethe institute has got a line-up of events for the month of March. The Goethe-Institut Book Club hosts the Lagos based American author Allyn Gaestel who is exploring one of Africa‘s most complex and compelling countries through the lens of women‘s health. Entry is free and you can get more details here. Another event that should be of interest is the Photography Exhibition. The photo exhibition Peregrinate features the work of three photographers: South Africans Thabiso Sekgala and Musa Nxumalo, and Kenyan Mimi Cherono Ngók. The exhibition explores the concept of photography as a common method of investigation, discovery and representation – an act of wandering undertaken by the photographer as traveler and explorer. Jointly curated by the featured photographers, this exhibition is the final stage for the three participants as part of the Goethe-Institut Sub-Sahara Africa portfolio workshop, the Photographers´ Masterclass. In Partnership with the Centre of Contemporary Arts. Also free entry and you can find more details here
