Creative Spaces with Tushar

Tushar is the founder of 16/16, a dual concept creative space and boutique Airbnb that aims to create spaces in Lagos for the exchange of ideas, art and love. It is now a significant platform for Nigerian creatives to interact with each other and the rest of the world - "the space is a reflection of the intense dynamism of the city and represents one of many such spaces that are now popping up all around." Peep Tushar's guide as he lets us in on all the creative spaces popping up around Nigeria's city of culture, Lagos.

Heauxmosapiens

"Sheila and Amir are running a research project for 6 months that started in Nov 2018. They’re using device theatre and performance to uncover wounds that socialisation has played in the life of the black male. It’s deep stuff. They’re also running and improv dance classes out of their space. Go visit! They’re amazing"

Alara

"Needs no introduction. This David Adjaye-built concept store is a visionary space and a must visit for anyone who comes to Lagos. Their restaurant in the back, NOK, is popping on Fridays"

Arthouse Foundation

"Lagos’ first non-profit artist residency program. They have brilliant artists coming in to work 3 sessions a year. It’s always great to go hang out on open days and talk to artists about their projects. They also have presentations of the artists’ work once the residency sessions are over"

IAMISIGO

"This is the showroom space for Bubu Ogisi’s IAMISIGO brand. Go here to shop, hang out and sip some rum agricole or, on special days and if you’re invited, party at the best raves in Lagos. Fashion Week season is always mighty eventful at this space"

Baroque Age Studio

"This concept space in Lekki is a collaboration project between a bunch of young creatives. They have a publication, a gallery space, a fashion label, and God knows what else. Their exhibitions focus on showcasing the process and use of technology"

The Treehouse Lagos

"Located in the top flat of a seven-story building in Lagos and founded by artist Wura-Natasha Ogunji, The Treehouse supports creative experimentation, artistic investigation and the asking of radical and open questions. With views of creek and lagoon, prison and polo fields, it provides a perfect platform for thinking about how spaces, architecture, and community influence and inform how we move, feel, and imagine the world"

hFACTOR

"Set up with the purpose of using creativity to engage with the community in Lagos Island, hFACTOR is a space and also a collective (of which I am a part). Through exhibitions, talks, gatherings and other engagements, we hope to have conversations opening people's minds to new possibilities"
