The Nigerian Night of Ideas will take place on January 31, 2019 at Alliance Française de Lagos – Ikoyi. Around the theme “Facing our time”, it will bring together speakers: intellectuals, researchers, artists – invited to debate on this theme.
Face our time, to better think about the future. In recent years the challenges facing our societies are increasing, with even greater acuity in Africa, particularly in Nigeria, which will see its population double by 2050, from 190 to 400 million.
This evening is to propose a general state of contemporary mobilizations in order to grasp what is happening today and talk about the possible ways to go and transform the present. 3 themes will be addressed:
– migrations
– feminine and feminist issues
– urbanity
Taking inspiration from the literary salons of the 17th century, while inscribing them in the modernity of our time, several “small salons” of a format of 45 minutes each will be set in a unit of time and space, in which will gather people, according to their preference of themes.
