General information

We sponsor exhibitions, create & develop art related events, facilitate creativity workshops, negotiate opportunities for artists, gather resources, and much more. The organization was birth out of the hearts of twin sisters, Bummi and Femi Anderson. The movement began in January 2004 when they came together for an literary and art exhibition. Bummi, a writer & author, read her poetry and Femi, the artist, displayed her artwork. After this experience, both felt a burden to see art, in its various forms, connect to life in their community. The Arts and the talents of others (also theirs) must be shared with the rest of the world.
