NCAE: Nigerian arts, culture takes centre stage in Paris

Nigerian arts and culture takes centre stage in Paris as the Embassy of Nigeria hosts France business community and friends of Nigeria to an exhibition of some of Nigeria’s finest art, cuisine, fashion, music, film and traditional games, on the platform of the Nigerian Creative Arts Exchange.

 

The Nigerian Creative Arts Exchange is a platform for promoting cultural exchange and diplomacy and aims to enhance social and economic collaboration between Nigeria and the world, by developing channels for commerce between Nigeria and France.

 

The exhibition which will take place at Le Pavilion Dauphine, Paris, Saint Clair on Saturday May 19, 2018, is a platform that demonstrates Nigeria’s interest in expanding economic and cultural bilateral relations with France.

 

It reinforces the similar commitment expressed last year when the French Prime Minister received the Nigerian Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, in Paris; and previously, when former President Francois Hollande attended Nigeria’s centennial celebrations in Abuja.

 

This sentiment is underscored by the fact that in only his first year in office, President Macron will be visiting Nigeria to further strengthen bilateral relations with Nigeria through trade and culture. In her Speech, the Nigerian Ambassador to France, Dr. Modupe Irele, noted that the event is not simply an opportunity to exhibit our culture or parade the talent we undoubtedly have in this country.

 

“It more importantly is a platform by which to harness the positive publicity created by these industries to stimulate broader interest in Nigeria and strengthen the foundation for investment in and trade with our country.

 

We feel this platform will be particularly appreciated by our French counterparts whose country boasts some of the top cultural institutions in the world, and whose cultural and creative industries contribute an important part of its economy.”
