The Media is invited to an URGENT exchange on the above subject, in the context of the demolition of the Artists’ Village at the National Theatre, Iganmu. The venue of this exchange could not be more symbolic and pertinent, since Freedom Park itself is the product of a spirited struggle by a few individuals who were committed to a creative option for the disposition of national landmarks, pitted against real-estate developers.
Please make time to join, and contribute to, the debate.
VENUE: Freedom Park.
DATE: Tuesday, Jan 26
TIME: 11 a.m. Please be PUNCTUAL.
This Press invitation is being copied to the Federal Minister for Information and Culture, as Special Invitee.
Convener: Wole Soyinka.
