The Abuja Literary Society is pleased to announce that preparation for the 5th Edition of its Abuja Literary and Arts Festival (ALITFEST), tentatively scheduled for September 2022, is in full swing.
The theme for 2022 is “The Struggling Thriving Artist”. It is intended as a follow up to last year’s theme “Making Art Work”. The theme for 2020 is “The Art of Empathy”.
“This year, we will be continuing our focus on creative livelihoods by equipping creatives with the information, skills, resources and networks that they need to thrive.” says the Festival Director Teniola Tayo.
Activities for ALITFEST22 will include panel discussions, a series of workshops (poetry, fiction and screenwriting), a boot camp for creatives, a poetry grand slam competition, a stage play, an art exhibition, a book and art fair, a fashion show and a music concert.
The programming will take place primarily in person, but with some virtual activities.
ALITFEST is an annual week-long multi-genre festival organised by the Abuja Literary Society (ALS) based in Nigeria’s capital city.
