24 countries, 150 exhibitors for AFAC Expo 2017

The National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) has said it is expecting at least 25 countries and 150 exhibitors at the 10th African Arts and Crafts (AFAC) Expo scheduled to hold in Abuja from August 27 to September 17, 2017.

Director-General, NCAC, Otunba Segun Runsewe, who made this known, Monday, in Abuja, said participants from these countries and the exhibitors were expected to showcase their unique cultural identities at the expo to.

He expressed commitment to justifying his appointment by using culture as the only tool to change the narratives of Nigeria.

"This time, we want to depart from having expo without media content so we need an overwhelming publicity for the event. The expo will be a market place for showcasing arts and crafts products such as fabrics, leather and souvenirs from Nigeria and other African countries.

"The expo is also apt as Nigeria needs to record remarkable achievements in developing the culture industry to enviable heights through festivals like AFAC," he said.

Runsewe said that the expo, with the theme: "Nigerian Crafts: The Untapped Treasure" would be geared toward harnessing and developing arts and crafts and other creative industries in the country.

"It will be a unique opportunity for artists, craft dealers, manufacturers and other stakeholders to buy and sell their brands."

According to him, the expo will play a key role toward job creation and economic empowerment.
