Life House Fundraiser & Benefit

This is Ugoma Adegoke of The Life House culture hub in Lagos, photographed while engrossed in Lola Shoneyin's reading last Saturday. She's also one of the few thoroughly modern women with whom I share an everyday iro-and-buba aesthetic.

Run by Ugoma with her husband Dayo, The Life House has provided sanctuary for many a culture vulture since its inception. The place is just lovely, and everything arty happens there, complete with delightful munchies and atmosphere. But like all great art initiatives, The Life House needs support, and is holding a fundraiser tonight. See the below, from Ugoma Adegoke.

Please accept this as a formal invitation to our fundraiser event taking place on Monday 19 December 2011 from 6pm.

We ask for your support and that of the wider c
ommunity as we have embarked on an enthusiastic fundraising effort which we are hopeful will succeed to enable us to sustain and improve our expansive programming —including quality theatre, dance, music, and film presentations, along with outstanding community and our planned education initiatives.

The Life House is a much-needed social enterprise and community concept and we need your support to enable us continuously deliver a unique programme of original contemporary visual art, independent film, performing arts, wellness, lifestyle, education and engagement activities, which has been enjoyed by more than 3,000 people in the last 22 months.

We shall be hosting a Benefit on Monday 19th December 2011 with a view to raising monies, support and further goodwill from the community at large and ask once aga
in for your usual and unwavering support to make this a success and join us in further developing a one-of-a-kind, culture, multi-arts, wellness and lifestyle centre in Nigeria.

Attached is an invitation (designed for free in support by Zahara Creations).

Please attend; keep us in your thoughts and do
invite your friends and other lovers of culture.

We look forward to welcoming you with your
usual open hearts and open minds!

Yours Truly,

Ugoma Adegoke


The Life House
