Nigerian multinational commercial bank, Access Bank Plc, has announced that it will continually seek ways to provide funding and mentoring support to emerging, talented artists and propel them to the international stage.

For this reason, the institution has again announced its collaboration with Art X Lagos for its 6th edition of West Africa’s premier international art fair where the best and most innovative contemporary art from Africa and the Diaspora will be showcased and rewarded.

Founded in 2016 and organised every year, the Art X Lagos is put together to showcase presentations from leading galleries in Africa and the diaspora, talk programs, and specially curated art projects that could be appreciated in person and also virtually.

This year’s edition is slated to start from Thursday, November 4 to Sunday, November 7, 2021, at the Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, and will be available to watch online as well.

Speaking on Access Bank’s partnership on the event which is the fifth in a row now, the Group Head of Corporate Communications, Access Bank, Mr Amaechi Okobi, said that, “In line with our more than banking philosophy, Access Bank is a strong proponent of the Nigerian art scene and passionate about helping Africans tell the African story through creative and imaginative ways.

“Access Bank supports the drive for economic growth through empowerment with the necessary platforms and funding, hence our continued collaboration with Art X in teaching young people how to take advantage of their gifts and talents to establish themselves through Art.”

Adding that this opportunity would propel young artisans into the international scene, Mr Okobi noted that the involvement expresses the bank’s commitment towards ensuring that young talents on the continent are truly Africa’s gateway to the world.
