YOUTH EMPOOWERMENT PROJECT: FASHION REVOLUTION
Apart from Poetry Potter, we were able to embark on our new concept: Youth Empowerment Project, with the collaboration of Committee For Relevant Art (CORA) at the Lagos Book and Art Festival. We explore the Fashion aspect of the project and got support from Revolution Media and GIVE Network. The fashion show which was themed: Fashion Revolution was held on November 9, 2008 at the National Theatre.
