HAUS II GALLERY ANNOUNCES NEW WORKSPACE FOR LGBTIQ+ ARTISTS AND WRITERS IN LAGOS, NIGERIA
Lagos, Nigeria – Haus II Gallery in collaboration with Queercity Media is excited to announce the opening of a new workspace specifically for LGBTIQ+ artists and writers in Lagos, Nigeria. This state-of-the-art facility will provide a safe and supportive environment for these artists to create and share their work and will be a hub for the local community to come together and celebrate diversity.
The opening of this workspace is a major milestone for the LGBTIQ+ community in Nigeria, and we are thrilled to be able to provide a space where artists can feel free to express themselves without fear of discrimination. We believe that art has the power to bring people together and create a sense of belonging, and we are committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere for all.
The workspace will feature a range of resources and amenities to support the creative process, including private studios, shared workspaces, and a library stocked with a diverse selection of books and resources. We will also be hosting regular events and workshops, as well as exhibitions and other community-building activities.
“We are thrilled to be able to provide this much-needed resource for LGBTIQ+ artists and writers in Lagos,” said Olaide Kayode Timileyin, the Director of Queercity media and Productions. “We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves and share their work, and we hope that this new workspace will help to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for members of the community.”
The workspace will be opened Monday 9th of January and would run daily through Friday from 10:00am to 3:00pm, and all are welcome to come and use the space. Haus II Gallery looks forward to supporting the growth and development of the talented LGBTIQ+ artists and writers in Lagos through this new initiative.
