LBHF 2014 | Festival Message
This year, the Lagos Black Heritage Festival takes a break from its current series –- The Black in the Mediterranean Blue. While the Festival policy of a thematic selection for each edition is not abandoned, it moves from the geographic outlook to the disciplinary -- the discipline for this year being: Music.
Freedom Park now bestrides where once a notorious colonial prison - Broad Street Prison - stood. Torn down in the post-military era to make way for real estate scramble, the coveted site was rescued through the initiative of a group of thoughtful young architects.
'The Vision of the Child' SEASON 3
"The 2014 edition has been designed as an interactive test to stretch youthful creativity even more than in previous editions. Instead of the uni-disciplinary interpretation of the given theme, participants will now express their vision both in Painting and the Literary Arts.
Do Your Own Thing.
As always, the supporting cast to the main theme will be out in full form. There will be at least two dramatic premieres, the ever-popular DO YOUR OWN THING, always a showcase of surprise talents and unpredictable presentations.
