What is Ayamba Meet & Greet
Ayamba Meet & Greet began in February 2021 to bring together artists so we can interact with their works. This, we hope, will spark and inspire creative conversations that are necessary for the growth of arts and literature. We believe in the importance of building a literate society and the event helps us do so alongside our community.
Meeting on the first Saturday of every month, we invite one or two guests from a pool of upcoming and established creatives from around the region with a lot of insight to share.
We also have performances from attendees and play fun games like charades and Monopoly, while our friends at VersusNG host Just Dance sessions on the Nintendo Switch.
Join us this weekend
If all that sounds like your cup of tea, or coffee, then come on down this Saturday to #11 Surame Road, Unguwan Rimi, Kaduna. The event begins at 4:00pm on the dot, so if you’re scared of missing anything, don’t be late. See you soon!
