Cultural Festival for ‘Special Citizens’ at Ibadan Museum
The National Museum of Unity, Ibadan, is to hold a cultural festival for “special citizens” in Oyo State, on Wednesday, Oct. 21.
The Museum Curator, Mr Amos Olorunnipa, made this known in an interview with reporters in Ibadan.
Olorunnipa said the aim of the programme was to show love to the special children and get their talents showcased.
“We want to get them out of their homes so that they can interact with one another, let them relax away from their homes,” he said.
The curator said that invitation had been extended to all the special schools in the state, adding that the programme was packaged with so many activities.
“They should come and have fun; there will be a lecture on how to cope with disabilities, there will also be free gallery tour and exhibition of crafts from special schools/homes.
“There will be cultural displays such as music, drama, dance and even debates; we want them to showcase their talents.
“Some of them may be deaf or dumb but have some inherent talents in them.
“It will be a kind of competition and every school will surely go home with a prize; so we invited many special homes that can come,” he said.
Olorunnipa called on proprietors of the special schools to bring their students and make sure they prepared them on crafts to showcase at the event.
“I assure them that they will never regret coming for the programme, everybody that will come will surely be refreshed,” the curator said.
