Smartphone Photography Workshop
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

You need a:  Campus Badge to attend this event.

If taking ah-mazing pictures using only your phone sounds attractive to you, this masterclass is just perfect for you to learn how to do that. For a long time, the myth held that to achieve really good photography on mobile, you needed to have a really high-end (we mean so expensive that it can pay your house-rent or buy your car) phone. Well, not anymore. From shooting for Hugo Boss, Lacoste, CapitalSquare, Steve Harris and others over the last 2 years, we have earned our stripes.  Sign up for Smartphone Photography Workshop and learn from the pros!

Storytelling Through Film - A Panacea
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

You need a:  Campus Badge to attend this event.

Movies and all forms of visual storytelling, have always been more than just a tool for entertainment. Over the years, film has been used as a tool for social re-engineering, promoting themes which form the notions and opinions of viewers. Film often forms the first impressions people have for other societies and cultures and  when utilized skillfully, has proven to be a huge tool in social development.

The current state of our nation and society, is heartbreaking. There is a crisis of fitting the identities of the individual (ethnicities) within the constructs of the community (nation). Internally, there are so many lines that divide. This is evident oftentimes in the manner in which harmless conversations on social media rapidly degenerate into a hate filled back and forth, which often play along the prejudiced lines of tribe, religion and societal status. 

Nollywood has a huge role to play by emphasizing storytelling as a tool for nation building. Telling the right stories and promoting positive themes, can provoke necessary discussions among individuals, in homes, offices and streets. Passing the right information will go a long way in correcting wrongly held views and notions, while promoting a society that is more accommodating, and tolerant to the individual as well as the society as a whole.
