The British Council
creates and consolidates cross-cultural links and partnerships by organising
over 20 arts events every year in Nigeria, to an audience of over five thousand.
We reach out to many more on the Internet, on Radio, Television and newspapers
and magazines. We bring together, in residencies, workshops and exchanges,
artists and institutions from Britain and Nigeria.
On a regular basis, we host arts events around our Nigerian network. In the Garden, a programme which showcases the rich talent base of Nigerian artists in our Lagos office, will soon be featuring the many varied and wonderful talents that the Nigerian music scene is blessed with.
The Jubilee Dance Launch
haunting sound of the African flute amidst the shadows of dimmed lights
heralded what proved to be an exhilarating experience of the best of African
dance depicting the flows and ebbs of the quest for power and identity
in Nigeria. This sometimes haunting and other time energetic display of
scintillating and poignant African dance was the central attraction as
The British Council in Nigeria launched its Diamond Jubilee celebrations
on Sunday July 20, 2003 at the Lagoon Restaurant in Victoria Island. The
night of blazing lights, anecdotes, congratulatory speeches and reminisces
had this extravagant display of African dance as icing on the cake of
60 years of excellence in Nigeria.
