The Life House is proud to present Woman Rising 2016 in special celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD). The Life House is an art, culture and lifestyle concept that offers an alternative social experience for residents in Lagos.
WOMAN RISING is an integral arts development and performance event at the core of The Life House’s women’s development vision and was designed to further buttress the mission of community development and capacity building through music and musicianship.
In the 6th edition, Woman Rising is delighted to retain the tradition creatively fusing music, spoken word, theatre and pure unadulterated connection with the best of art and womanhood– which is all very needed in these hard times. Everyone present at the event can expect to have an exciting time and an opportunity to celebrate the arts through the works of amazing women while networking and getting acquainted with women from all walks of life!
