Life in my City art festival is an annual art festival which commenced in 2007. It is a festival used to showcase young artists and encourage creative awareness. The festival also comes with a competition.
For this year, quite a number of participants from various tertiary institutions enrolled for the competition and in a show of greatness, several OAU students, present and past, were shortlisted among the finalists from the Ibadan zone in Nigeria. These lucky ones would be showcasing more of their talent at the grand finale of the festival in Enugu state later in October.
About 10 of the 12 finalists shortlisted from the Ibadan zone for the finals are said to be students of OAU with some names on the list being the popular painter of Fajuyi Hall Water Place; Pelumi Ponmile, Badru Taofeek, Ibrahim Rashidat amongst others. The festival is used to promote culture and creativity in Africa as a whole. The grand finale of the colourful event will be on the 27th of October, 2016 which is also the award night.
We wish everyone on the #TeamOAU good success at the event.
