The Story Teller House fundraiser planned for Saturday, 21 March 2020 in Lagos, has been postponed. The change became necessary for compliance with Government measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Laroka Trust Foundation deeply regrets any inconvenience this change has caused invited guests.
Laroka Trust Foundation is organising a fundraiser for The Story Teller House project. The private event will hold on Saturday 21 March 2020 at De Meros Hotel and Suites, Ikeja, Lagos State. The goal of the project is to deliver a modern Yoruba Museum. The project will use digital technology to capture and present the rich traditions of the Yoruba people of West-Africa.
It was with open arms that Professor Banji Akintoye welcomed members of Laroka Trust Foundation to his house on 17th May 2017. Our mission was to discuss the Story Teller House project with the eminent historian.
We had been planning our visit to Professor Michael Omolewa for many months. Getting an appointment with the former UNESCO Chair was was not a small task due to his busy schedule. Professor Omolewa was Nigeria’s permanent representative to UNESCO from 2000 to 2009.
