Grand Finale for the 2016 Life In My City Art Festival (LIMCAF) competition starts 24th October to the 29th of October.
Theme: RICHES WITHIN
In all spheres of existence, humanity is faced with challenges which severely test the resilience of the human spirit. In confronting these existential issues, man has relied on his ingenuity, resourcefulness, innovative and improvisational abilities, as survivalist modes. For the artist, these attributes can be creatively applied, using the different channels of artistic media, to address issues, as well as experiences that highlight the resilience of the human spirit to adapt to changes; move beyond all odds, and meaningfully appraise the past, positively engage the present and lay a better foundation for tomorrow.
All Artists below the age of 35 years as at October 30th 2016 residing and studying/working in Nigeria for at least 5 years are eligible to participate.
