Nurturing People and Ideas

University of Lagos (UNILAG) Permanent Public Installation

Nurturing People and Ideas was a multi-faceted process of community building that included the collaborative development of a large-scale public artwork at the University of Lagos, featuring University of Lagos students, staff, and community. Nurturing People and Ideas represents my evolving conception of collaboration and art making as a framework for transformation that includes social relevance and localized solutions.  The culminating public painting represents a synthesis of participant generated photographs and writing from the 2012 Sharing Culture/smARTpower Workshop at the University of Lagos, April 2012.
