The Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) has concluded plans of kicking off its 2024 culture season with the opening of its CORA Library and Resource Centre, on Sunday, January 14, 2024, at 4:00 PM.
Located at the Lagos city’s culture space, Freedom Park, Lagos Island, the flagship Library is set for opening at CORAVille, Freedom Park, No.1 Hospital Road, Lagos Island; (Entrance via Gate 2).
The artistic and literary event will have as its Special Guest of Honour, Professor Wole Soyinka.
Located at CORAVille — a section of the monumental space for creative production and expression, Freedom Park — the CORA L&RC is expected to serve the interest of the general public, in particular students and youths.
The intention is to continue to encourage the citizenry to see education as the singular key to eblightenment and empiwerment – all in the cause of nation-building and human capital development.
The Library will hold regular literary activities, especially the flagship CORA BOOKTrek, the Literacy Campaign project, which brings authors into direct encounters with readers of their works.
The LR &C will also stage regular programmes on such key literacy-improvement engagements as workshops and seminars on writing, reading, speech-making among others. It will be a home to fellow artist organisations committed to deepening literacy in the national consciousness.
The project enjoys the support of several organisations and individuals, notably Freedom Park, Chief Kayode Aderinokun (Chair CORA Trustee), the esteemed CORA Board members, subscribers and volunteers, and, especially the support of Hawthornden Foundation.
Essentially, it benefits from donations by authors, publishers, bookstores, and members of the public in general.
