SoE on Culture, Arts and Wellness

June 5, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Over time, arts (poetry, music, drama) in their different forms and genres have proven to be good instruments and tools for the awakening of consciousness in the pursuit of peace and harmony, fight for justice and promotion of social, political and economic wellbeing of a people.

In this session of our School, instead of the usual conversational instigator to scholar format, we will have artistes communicate environmental ills and impacts of climate change using music, drama, poetry etc while also pointing the audience (scholars) to proposed solutions in the same manner.

The aim of this school session is to critically interrogate the nexus between climate change, arts, and wellness – with the aim of enhancing the wellbeing and wellness of community people affected by pollution, floods, deforestation, and other ecological harms in Nigeria using arts.

The session will aid the broadening of impacted communities’ understanding of the root causes of climate change and environmental degradation, while finding means of holding polluters accountable, promoting the rights of Mother Earth.
