The fourth edition of the Point of View (POV) monthly series of talks held on Friday, January 24, 2020 at the Alliance Francaise/Mike Adenuga Centre in Lagos.
Titled “Art as a Driver of Environmental Sustainability”, the session advocated for sustainable cities and communities by promoting interdisciplinary collaborations between professionals, the arts, science and technology to highlight the role of the visual arts in ensuring policy frameworks that address climate change.
It featured presentations by artists and environmentalists on how they have not only adopted environmentally sustainable practices in conceptualising work from recycled waste, but also created wealth, as well as raised awareness and engaged local communities.
Initiated by The Ben Enwonwu Foundation in collaboration with the Society of Nigerian Artists, the monthly POV is aimed at interrogating the evolving role of the visual arts in addressing pressing issues affecting Africa and the rest of the world.
