Critical stakeholders in Nigeria's art scene are agreed art has gained a lot of ground in recent years starting with the country's return to democracy in 1999. Nevertheless, creativity finds expression in relatively limited space. Art is created, displayed and discussed only in museums and galleries, which are largely concentrated in Lagos or other urban centres. But Goethe-Institut Nigeria is making significant departure from the norm in its series of workshops in parts of the country. With its collaboration with German-based Nigerian curator Emeka Udemba, the borderline between elitist cultural scenes as typified by galleries and museums and the general public is being challenged in a bid to make art more accessible to the generality of the people.

GOVERNMENT has once again been called upon to take the issues of royalty and piracy seriously so as to prevent Nigerian music from going the way of the home video industry currently battling for survival. The call came on the heels of a recent open letter to Mr. Adebambo Adewopo, the Director-General of Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) in a paid advertorial by a consortium of copyright owners in the music business. They had called on the commission's D-G to halt what they called "corporate piracy" so as to save the industry from being cheated and undermined corporate pirates by issuing licenses to copyright collecting bodies. They had argued that the failure of the commission to name agencies to so act on their behalf was robbing them and the nation of billions of naira in revenues and taxes.

Year 2009, for many, has been one year of mixed fortune. For the arts community, it was another annus horribilis - horrible year. There had been frustrating arts and culture policies. And not forgetting, a year of dashed hope, as the National Endowment for the Arts bill is still waiting to see the light of day. It was a year of motion without movement... But wait a minute, it was a year of painful deaths. The spate of deaths recorded in the year was such that baffled many.
