Breaking boundaries of knowledge through curiosity

Breaking boundaries of knowledge through curiosity

Book Title: In the Curious City

Author: Stephen Erutor-Pat

Pagination: 72

Publisher: CoachInFocus Resource Planet

Year of publication: 2016

Reviewer: Tony Okuyeme 

 

 

“T

he greatest invention in the world”, notes American inventor and businessman, Thomas Edison, “is the mind of a child and every mind is born with the instinct of curiosity.”

Also, renowned German-born theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein, notes that “Curiosity has its own reason for existing. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

This is the focus of book written by Stephen Erutor-Pat and curiously titled In the Curious City. This 72-page book published under the Motivated & Driven Series, the author notes, “is a summer when every young mind should explore the world”, stressing that …“In the Curious City… wisdom begins in Wonder.”

 

 

He however added that “Answers only change the world when the right questions are asked.” Divided into six chapters with an introduction, this ‘larger than its frame’ work is a must read for anyone eager to explore or question everything for the advancement of knowledge and discovery.

In the introduction, the author presents his thoughts, and tells of the inspiring power of a girl who is trapped in her father’s house, situated in the middle of a thick forest and was firmly secured every night with a heavy stone, such that no one could neither come in nor go out. But curious leads her to know new things, to meet great people, and opened her to exciting world of opportunities.

 

 

Chapter one titled “The Curious Cat”, the author provides different definitions of ‘Curiosity. Quoting from Wikipedia, he states: “Curiosity is a quality related to inquisitive thinking such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in human and many animal species…”

 

 

On his part, he defines curiosity as “the quest for new ideas and information, a strong desire to question things until understood. It is a hunger to explore and delight in discovery.” According to him, “when we are curious, we approach the world with a child-like habit of poking and prodding and asking questions. We are attracted to new experiences. Rather than pursuing an agenda or a desired set of answers, we follow our question where they lead.

“And the exciting thing is that you do not need all the answers at once, you just need to get one answer after another, satisfy one curiosity after another and you are well on your way to fascinating discoveries.”

 

 

In this 21st century…, Africa, he says, is in dire need of deep thinkers, people who will go after knowledge with a club, stressing that “power goes to the continent or country that has greater knowledge. This is also true of individuals. This is why countries like America, Japan, China, India, the UK, and so many others are powerful.”    

 

 

Chapter two, as the title suggests, focuses on “What Curiosity Does To You”.  According to the author, curiosity promotes intelligence, awakens the mind to new ideas, perspectives, as well as makes one more positive among other things. 

 

 

In Chapter three, the author urges the reader “Explore: Question Everything”, and never quit until you have satisfied your curiosity.  In this chapter, the author also writes on the power of observation, highlighting the contributions the contributions of the Wright Brothers, Isaac Newton to science and knowledge.

 

Chapter four is titled “Discovering Your Spark; Burn Up Some Curiosity”. Here he opens with a quotes by James Stephens and Dorothy Parker, which states respectively that: “Curiosity will conquer far more than bravery will”; and that “The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.”

 

 

He however notes that you must believe in yourself, stressing that “until you are successful inside, you cannot be successful on the outside. And that is why wealth is not defined by what a man has physically but by the quality of his thoughts. This is why this book is written, to help you see yourself and the world differently.

 

 

In this chapter, the author also offers insight into how to develop a questioning mind. These include acknowledge that you don’t know; seek to clarify thoughts; learn how to listen; and mingle with those who know more than you.

 

 

“The Lead of Curiosity: What Education Really Is” is the title of chapter five, while the “Epilogue: Impression is never the goal is the focus of chapter six. How to develop your curiosity; replace fear of the unknown with curiosity; write, put your thoughts and ideas on paper; be tolerant and admit when you are wrong; become an expert in something; learn to learn and do; and don’t take things for granted are some the areas the ways to develop your curiosity, according to the author.

 

 

How the author has managed to say so much in this small book is no doubt, ‘curious’.  This is a compelling and inspiring book.

Stephen Erutor-Pat is the founder and president of SoarSTARS Club, an NGO with a mission to bring out the best in every young star.

 

 

He is a passionate motivational speaker, a writer and a strong believer in the Great New Nigeria. He strongly believes in change and that Nigeria will lead the world if her youths (her future) can but rise up, sharpen their skills, develop their talents and pursue knowledge with a club.

Culture, creativity as Janggu Drums workshop ends in Ajegunle

Culture, creativity as Janggu Drums workshop ends in Ajegunle

I

t was an entertaining and inspiring showcase of culture and creativity, particularly how traditional drums as a musical instrument can celebrate and unify cultures, as Janggu Drum Training Graduation Ceremony took centre stage at the Ajeromi-Ifelodun Local Government Secretariat, Lagos.

 

The Janggu drum is the most representative drum in traditional Korean music. It consists of an hourglass-shaped body with two heads made from animal skin.

 

 

The atmosphere was convivial, as guests, including parents and guardians of graduating drummers, artistes and students waited anxiously for the performances.

 

 

And when the performances started, the audience was literally transported to South Korea and back to Nigeria in a potpourri of drums ensemble and colourful costumes depicting both cultures – South Korea and Nigeria.

 

 

The event is culmination of the Ajegunle axis of the Janngu drums training workshop series initiated and facilitated by notable Nigerian drummer and choreographer, Mr. Isioma Williams, in collaboration with South Korean Cultural Centre in Nigeria.

The workshop was earlier held in Orile Iganmu and Barija areas of Lagos, respectively.

 

 

In his opening remark, Mr. Williams explained the idea behind the workshop and how Janggu drums are taught.

According to him, he was inspired by his encounter with this traditional Korean hourglass-shaped drum, in 2013 when he participated in the cultural exchange initiative at the National Museum of Korea in Seoul, and upon his return to Nigeria, he decided to share the knowledge with others, giving cultural values both ways.

 

 

“This is not just to promote another culture but to understand some of the values attached to some of these traditional drums,’’ he said.

He added, “Drums are therapeutic and you benefit both ways either as the one drumming or the one listening to it.”

 

 

The graduation ceremony provided the platform for the Janggu workshop participants – among them, professional dancers   – to showcase their skills after weeks-long rigorous training during the workshop. They showed, characteristic finesse, how the Janngu drum can also be adapted to various Nigerian music, including Afro-pop, rap, Fuji, and folksongs.

 

 

The children performance featured six boys namely Taiye Oyeleke, Daniel Adesuyi, Goodluck Atela, Emmanuel Sobemi, Jamiu Adio and Mohammed Ganiu.

Highlights of the event was the presentation of special awards to some of the participants for their outstanding performances and in recognition of the efforts during the Janggu drum training workshop. The commendation award was given to Mabel Chuks Okonkwo while the Excellence Award was presented to Nwaneri Barnabas.

Audio-visual heritage materials as important sources of history

Audio-visual heritage materials as important sources of history

T

he use of audio-visual heritage materials as important sources of history was the kernel of discourse at a Roundtable organised by the Centre for Black and African Arts and Civilisation (CBAAC) held recently at the Amphi Theatre of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, in commemoration of FESTAC’77 @ 41. 

 

 

Titled Remembering FESTAC’77 @ 41: Utilizing The Audio-Visual Heritage Materials as Important Sources of History, the Roundtable brought together scholars, culture administrators, stakeholders in the arts and culture sector, critics, management and staff of CBAAC, as well as students of OAU.

 

 

The Acting Director-General of CBAAC, Mrs Ndidi Aimienwauu, in her address, noted the unique role which the CBAAC has continued to play in intensifying effort in preserving, promoting, propagating and enhancing global understanding and appreciation of the contribution of the Black race to global ideals through audio and visual heritage preservation.

 

 

She added that FESTAC’77 remains one of the most celebrated festivals held to showcase Black and African Cultures in its finest traditions, and an unqualified success story. 

 

 

“FESTAC’77 as some of us would have known, remains one of the most celebrated and deliberately orchestrated festivals held to showcase Black and African Cultures in its finest traditions. Expectedly, it attracted participants from 59 Black and African Countries and Communities and turned out to be the greatest assemblage of peoples of Black and African descent gathered together for the celebration of their cultural heritage. Though critics may have out of ignorance, unfortunately expressed reservations about the festival, yet it is still widely believed that FESTAC’77 remains an unqualified success story. Apart from rekindling interest in Black and African Cultures and asserting its equality with other cultures of the world, it more importantly brought global attention to the invaluable contributions of the Black race to the pool of universal knowledge. It is interesting to note that the establishment of CBAAC is a response to the need to reinforce and sustain the gains of FESTAC’77. “Therefore, the theme of this Roundtable: Remembering Festac’77 @ 41: Utilizing the Audio-visual Heritage Materials as Important Sources of History, is carefully crafted to bring to light the pivotal role of audio –visual in the preservation and promotion of the rich cultural heritage of the African race,” she said. 

 

 

The CBAAC DG added that “the audio and visual – which includes the television, radio, cinema, films, etc., are the most ubiquitous, inescapable technological mediums use in the documentation, reconstruction and projection of the historical and cultural heritage of a people, man ever invented. Reason being that of the major phenomena which directly contribute to the dynamic process of basic changes in modern societies, it is an undisputable fact that the role of the audio-visual in the documentation and propagation of African cultures is all-pervading.

 

 

“Therefore, it is important that we utilize this dynamic and powerful technological media instrument in documenting, reconstructing and communicating Africa’s cultural and historical experiences for the benefit of the future generations of Africans and the African Diaspora. It is in the light of this that this Roundtable programme is being organised.”

 

 

According to her, the Centre has an Archival and Audio-Visual units that houses all audio-visual materials including films, Music of renowned artiste and legends that participated in the historical festival, etc. “These materials which emanated from Festac’77, are preserved not just for research purposes but also to further understanding and appreciation of the importance of Festac’77 in African cultural renaissance.”

 

 

Associate Professor of Mass Media, Theatre and Communication Studies, Department of English and Communication Studies, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Federal University, Otuoke, Bayelsa State, Nigeria, Osakue Stevenson Omoera, in his paper, titled “Benin Video-Films as Archival Sources of History Introduction”, examined how Benn video films could serve as archival sources of history in Nigeria. He used some historical Benin films to underpin his argument and highlighted the cultural capital as well as economic possibilities of paying close attention to that aspect of Nigeria’s cultural heritage. 

 

 

“To do this, a well thought through plan of community screening of Benin language films in Benin and environs should be set in motion to apprise the Benin people of today of their history with to view to making them learn veritable cultural values such as lineage greetings, proverbs and language. Technology should be deployed to archive and preserve these films as social dairies for generations of Benin, Nigerians yet unborn and for the present and future scholars of Benin culture, art and history and Nigerian Studies.”

 

 

Dr. Anthony Onwuma, in his paper, spoke on “Reversing the Challenges of Afro-Pessimism through Audio-Visual Preservation of Black and African Cultural Heritage: The CBAAC Example”.

 

 

Highlights of the event include a short clips of FESTAC’77 performance by CBAAC Audio Visual Section, and cultural/musical  performances by FESTAC’77 veteran, Mr. Wole Alade  backed by the Music Department, O. A. U, Ife.
