With the success of the debut festival last year, #ALitFest19 will aim to build on, and further, the objectives of the previous festival. The theme this year – Arts and Social Consciousness – will provide the opportunity to examine how Art can change the world and be a socially conscious tool across the different ideological leanings existent globally and more specifically, across the continent and Nigeria in particular.

The Festival will include writing workshops, panel discussions, a modernized version of the play Wedlock of the Gods, film screenings, a book swap, and a Poetry Grand Slam where the winner takes all in the form of NGN200,000! For the parents in the group, there will also be a children's writing workshop. This promises to be a fun packed weekend.

Looking forward to seeing you at #ALitFest19
