Annual Cultural Slum Carnival
The Annual Cultural Slum Carnival is targeted at raising community resilience in the slum with the celebrations of cultures in a carnival.
EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA
In festive seasons, inhabitants of the slum areas are beneficiaries of goodwill from well off citizens.
Having a cultural Community Carnival/Festival in the urban Slums will create an air of celebration where every culture and tribe represented is decorated and people are adorned in their traditional attires with floats, music, displays and dancing.
My idea is to infuse the individual cultural identities of the inhabitants of slum areas into a vibrant festival of cultures celebrated annually as a carnival.
My beneficiaries are the inhabitants of Makoko, Lagos Nigeria.
HOW DOES YOUR IDEA TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTEXT OF URBAN SLUMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE?
My idea while being a revenue generating project calling the attention of the media and support organizations will also serve as a uniting factor bringing stress relief to the inhabitants of the slum areas especially during the festive season.
Yes, between one and two years
