The Unilag/OYASAF workshop is in its third year and it is geared towards harnessing the gains derivable from the collaboration between the town and the gown. It provides younger artists the opportunity of sharing with one another and learning from professional artists, art teachers and art lovers. The Unilag/OYASAF collaboration harmonizes both formal and informal training methods and offers a more practical approach to learning.
Areas to be covered by the workshop include; (i) Ceramics, (ii) Experimental Art forms; i.e Performance Art and Waste recycling (iii) Bead and wire works and (iv) Photography. These will be handled by eminent artists such as Ayodeji Adewunmi, Boye Ola, Jelili Atiku, Temilola Marindotin, Ariyo Oguntimehin and Adedamola Runsewe.
