The Nigerian Arts Group has uncovered its specialties/social mission to the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup. Authorities of the gathering at the end of the week unveiled that the social mission was deliberately intended to grandstand Nigerian expressions and culture at the 2018 FIFA World Cup from June 14 to July 15 in Russia, including that the mission would involve a presentation of Nigeria’s rich expressions and social legacy, and in addition vital associations and systems administration sessions with worldwide players (particularly in the regions of diversion, culture and tourism).
According to the President of the Group, Dr. Patrick Okpah, the group will also visit cultural and tourism sites across Russia.
The art exhibition will include Nigerian Undergraduates’ Exhibition of Arts (NUXART), the Nigerian Secondary Schools Arts Exhibition (NISSART) as its fulcrum, with the addition of works of some other seasoned artists and a few artworks from selected secondary schools in Nigeria.
He disclosed that NUXART exhibition had been held in USA, London, Ghana and Nigeria over the last 15 years, explaining that it was designed to showcase the creative talents of Nigerian undergraduate students (in universities, polytechnics and Colleges of Education across Nigeria) and some mentor-artists.
“The initiative has remained a very potent tool for empowering and exposing Nigerian arts and artists, and instilling entrepreneurial skills in them,” Dr. Okpah said.
