Ilojo Bar: 5 Years Later
Webinar on Communicating Heritage to the Public

On 11 September 2016 a bulldozer tore down Ilojo Bar, a Brazilian style National Monument on Lagos Island. Exactly five years after this illegal demolition, Legacy The Historical and Environmental Interest Group of Nigeria is organising a webinar in which experts in the field from Nigeria and abroad discuss lessons learnt about how to tell stories of heritage that will engage the public and turn them into genuine stakeholders.
