I’m happy with this new initiative #art4development. If it is about putting myself out there in support of the poor, I am all in! This is what Community Sponsorship is about- changing lives. – Dakore Egbuson-Akande.
This isn’t about me, it’s about the poor local artists, there is indeed a divide between those in the poor communities and the professional artists and It’s time to bridge that gap. – Gerald Chukwuma, Contemporary Artist / CEO, Gallery1957.
I am proud to associate myself with an initiative that seeks to create an enabling environment for those whose voices would otherwise not have been heard. It’s great that #Art4Development has created a platform for the professional artists to meet the locals. A new generation of professional artists is about to be groomed. – Chris Kehinde Nwandu, Publisher, CKN News, President, Guild of Professional Bloggers of Nigeria.
