What's been going on with me...

It has been a challenge to blog regularly as my responsibilities increase as manager of the Africore Galleries. It has been a challenging couple of months but worth it in terms of professional and personal growth.

We are currently working on developing projects for 2010, which promises to be an exciting year in the arts and culture sector as well as for sports and recreation. Funding is always a challenge but we look forward to some really interesting collaborations between artists from Nigeria and their counterparts in South Africa.

I am off to Nairobi, Kenya for a 2-day seminar on cultural policy sponsored by the ARTerial Network from the 24th to the 27th of November.

I have also gone into a private business venture with two other partners, I think it is important to have other alternatives in these unstable financial times. Particularly in light of the current downsizing exercise by the Africore Group our parent company.

Thank you!!

Hello Ijeoma

The recession has definitely made everyone in the art world rethink their strategies around art making and art trading - sometimes in ways that demand a different kind of creativity - for example pushing the galleries out of their own contexts to form partnerships with people, projects and even organisations that before haven't even been thought of. This of course has its own rewards and perils.
