Event Theme – OUR HISTORY.YOUR STORY.OUR FUTURE
‘Our History’ reminds us all that reflecting and understanding the past is crucial. It is also vital to learn from it or to ensure those wrongs are never recurrent in the future.
‘Your Story’ reflects the fact that your journey forms a significant part of Nigeria’s story, whether pain or victory.
‘Our Future’ reinforces that fact that lives in the hearts, minds and actions of all Nigerians as we move forward that our unity in diversity makes us richer, and that together, we are stronger.
The photo exhibition intends to achieve the following
– To showcase most of these pre and post-colonial historical Nigerian pictures ;
– To drive useful conversations and possible interventions on very important national historical events, festivals and other memories, which active youths are losing fast because of our poor archiving culture
– Reinforcing the importance of taught and research of history in schools as well as make proactive steps in preserving information/ photography to serve as a good source of Nigeria’s history which will continue to be referenced by academicians, historians etc.
– To stimulate imaginations of young vibrant Nigerians about Nigeria and it’s beautiful past, traditions, customs, culture, peoples, leaders and more.
