This year’s Culturati event will redefine the world perception of the continent’s culture, boost tourism development and attract foreign investors, the convener, Idris Aregbe, has said.
Aregbe, who spoke yesterday at the Culturati Dome in Lagos while giving highlight of the 13th edition of the culture fiesta, which comes up on December 13 at Amore Gardens, Lekki, said the 2020 event of Africa’s largest cultural fusion would provide a platform to synergise African culture and that of other continents to foster strong collaborations and explore the rich diversities of cultures, giving Africa, especially Nigeria, the edge to become destination for tourists.
The culture aficionado said this year’s event has been designed to promote African culture, growth of local businesses and human development, thus restoring Africa’s eroding cultural pride, while arresting the cycle of poverty and unemployment.
He said these are the reasons for this year’s event with the theme: ‘Unleashing African Potentials’.
According to him, the event is expected to kick off with a red carpet and promises to be an exciting, educative and inspiring event with a number of features, including arts & cultural fair, symposium, fashion show and runway, music & dance, drama, cocktail, special recognition and awards.
