Lagos International Poetry Festival


This year's Lagos International Poetry Festival coincides with the 50th anniversary of Lagos State, and so along with a four day series of events including workshops, panel discussions, readings and performances held throughout the city, there will be a compilation directed by Wole Soyinka, of fifty poems, by fifty poets on Lagos. The poems will be blown into life-sized digital banners and placed around Freedom Park, the venue of the festival and one of the city’s art and cultural nerve centers.
