Poets Celebrate International Women’s Day with Coloured Chalks
Earlier on this week, women all over the world celebrated the International Women’s Day, they were celebrated too, by their male counterparts.
At Freedom Park Lagos, Nigeria’ cultural art hub, there was a different kind of celebration. An otherwise regular day at the park changed when three amazing poets, Michelle Mhosen, Maria Stephens, and Ros Martin, caused a frenzy by chalking words on the floor. The words literally drawn on the floor with chalks of different colours to represent different races, included quotes from Maya Angelou and others.
Soon they had everyone at the Park’s Food Court writing and participating in their creative “Chalk on the floor” activity.
“It was colourful, inspiring and a worthy exercise” said one of the male guests, who participated in the creative chalking of words on the floor.
The Chief Warden of Freedom Park, Mr Theo Lawson, and Reggae artiste Captain Blaze, couldn’t resist joining in on the exercise.
