Borders Within 2016: Help us in your City or Region
From May 12 to June 26, 2016 we shall embark on a Road Trip across 14 states in all regions of Nigeria on the “Borders Within Trans-Nigerian Road Trip Project".
Our aim is first, to discover our own country and through our encounters and experiences create works that encourage conversations about our differences, similarities and hoping, as a result, to underscore the borders that are both inscribed and elusive within the country. The artists – employing a subjective gaze – will focus primarily on reflecting the voices of individuals – the average Nigerians. For this, we are reaching out to every Nigerian (or non Nigerian) familiar with any of the cities or regions we shall be visiting (see itinerary below) to join in this effort by contributing to the following information:
- Historic or significant sites to visit (by this we also mean places that are important in your opinion but are not known or underrepresented).
- Interested hosts (ranging from accommodating the participants to offering a platform for creation of work or presentation)
- Interested contact persons and guides
Please note that all of this is on pro bono basis. Your contribution means a lot in making this a collective endeavour.
