The 7 edition of the project tagged "BornTroWay Bariga2" is set to take place from the 28 Sept - 2 Oct, 2015 in Akoka, Yaba, Lagos.

BornTroWay is a FREE creative arts training initiative and in collaboration with the Akoka-based Clara Mac-Ameckor Orphan Foundation, the project aims to promote individual self-confidence, self-expression and teamwork among 35 youths (aged 15-25) of Bariga/Akoka and surroundings. It entails a free week long training which will culminate in a performance open to the general public on Friday 2 October 2015 at 104 St. Finbarrs College Road, Akoka, Yaba, 10:30am, at the main Bariga Market at 12noon.

Interested participants are hereby cordially invited to free and open auditions at 8am (prompt) on Friday, 25 September 2015 at the Clara Mac-Ameckor Orphan Foundation, 104 St. Finbarrs College Road, Akoka, Yaba, Lagos. The audition is on a first come first served basis and will accommodate the fist 100 candidates registering at the venue.

This is our second visit to the community of Bariga – the first was three years ago on 17-21 September 2012.  We are excited to bring back our workshop to such vibrant community of youth and to use spoken word, music, dance and acting to focus on the issue of 'waste' — environmental issues and human waste (undiscovered, untapped or underutilized talent)" said Ilaria Chessa of Planet Heart Foundation and co-founder of the project.

BorntroWay will be led by seasoned instructors Ade Bantu; Segun Adefila; and AJ Dagga Tolar.
