OpenArt 2020 is fast approaching and we the coordinators are still setting the grounds and preparing the tables to ensure the program is an all round success.
This year’s training is tagged #eDeyBayelsa. The youths of Bayelsa state shall be getting endowed with life changing skills and brain wracking knowledge.
The ultimate purpose of this training is to divert the attention of the young people of Bayelsa and Nigeria at large from irrelevant social vices and things that add very little value to life and redirect it to productivity and creativity. This mission of ours shall be promoted using four hashtags;
#drawNotDrugs: Pinpointing the need for young people to embrace the art of creativity rather than venturing into drug abuse.
#LaptopNotGuns: Is directed towards government bodies and people of authority to “empower” the youths with meaningful things rather than firepower.
#InteractionNotDistraction: is meant to show and as well disrupt how easy it can be for youths to be distracted by some of the norms of nowadays, like social media and parties and help them pay more attention to more important things.
#SkillsNotKill: is synonymous to laptop not guns as is set to encourage the youths to pick up meaningful traits and be more career minded instead of taking lives all in the name of cultism or political clashes.
With all these at the forefront, the sole purpose of OPENART 2020 is to impact positively in the lives of Nigerian youths. To help be the best they can be. To help boost the birth of more creatives and intellectuals. To drastically reduce the rate at which young bloods are being spilled.
That been said, we would like to plea that we’re very much open to external support and partnership.
