School Arts Exhibition got underway in Lagos Tuesday as seven private and public schools converged on the library auditorium of the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC), Lagos to express what the United Nations (UN) meant to them in different artistic forms.

From oil paints on canvass to pencil drawing, tie and dye, modelling, textile design and waste-to-wealth cultural industry exhibits, the students put on display, a total of 78 creative works of arts, which reflected their rich knowledge of the works of the UN and what the organisation stands for.

Curating their works, the students explained the UN as a peacekeeper, the human rights protector, a gender equality advocate, an umbrella organisation of all nations and the hope of the people. They also exhibited works that show what the UN does in the area of environment, housing, culture, education and health.

Addressing the students and other participants, the National Information Officer of the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) Lagos, Oluseyi Soremekun, conveyed the gratitude of the centre to the participating schools and urged them to continue to learn about the United Nations having earlier made a presentation on ‘UN for school children’.

Participating in the one-week exhibition are Covenant University Secondary School, Ota; Intesida Schools, Alagbado; Ojodu Junior Grammar School, Ojodu; Southfield Academy; Sunglee Formation Schools, Awoyaya and The Outliers Schools, Surulere, all in Lagos.
