Iquo Eke is a prolific performance poet and the youngest Nigerian longlisted for the NNLG prize. Symphony of Beginning is her debut book, and it can gained critical acclaim as charming and insightful.

Chio Amu Nnadi is the author of Through the Window of a Sandcastle. He has twice been recognised as one of Nigeria’s prolific poets. Described as Nigeria’s Dennis Brutus, Umu Nnadi’s poems are profound.

This edition intends to delve into a serious discourse on the future of the Arts in Nigeria. With intellectuals and young minds expressing their expectations of the arts, we hope that we can discover answers to baffling questions that has relegated the arts to the background of social, political and economic importance.

The mic is open to both young and old minds in this edition.
