Embracing Unity in Diversity: Dr. Foladavid launches 'The Unity in Diversity Project'

This groundbreaking initiative is set to illuminate Nigeria's vibrant cultural mosaic through an immersive journey spanning visual art, documentary, and cultural celebration. The project unfolds in three compelling phases:

A Cultural Odyssey Filming a mesmerising road trip across different states of Nigeria's multicultural landscape to experience firsthand these cultures which will form basis for their depiction on the world record drawing and create a documentary called the “ROAD TO RECORD”.

The largest drawing in the world by an individual. Prepare for history in the making as Dr. Foladavid aims to break the record for the "world's largest drawing by an individual" at Onikan Stadium, Lagos from the 16 to 21 July 2024. Spanning over 850m2, this monumental artwork will depict a map of Nigeria showing its myriad tribes through their unique attires, languages, art and essence.

Celebrating Diverse Cultures. A worldwide call to every Nigerian to showoff their tribe using the hashtag #repyourtribe on all online platforms and a physical celebration with #RepYourTribe (#RYT) Carnival live at the Stadium grounds alongside the creation of the world record drawing, a digital and physical extravaganza honoring Nigeria's cultural tapestry.

According to Dr. Foladavid, “This project is made to incorporate the hearts and stories of Nigerians living together with different ways of life, and how they have embraced and accommodated one another despite their diverse cultures and traditions”.

Haresh Aswani, Managing Director at Tolaram Group expressed, "This project is not just about breaking records; it's about uniting hearts, fostering understanding, and promoting peace among Nigeria's diverse communities."

In collaboration with esteemed partners including the Federal Ministry of Arts, Culture and Creative Economy, Nigerian Tourism Development Agency, Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Social Development, National Gallery of Art, Lagos State Government, and National Troupe of Nigeria, "The Unity in Diversity Project" is poised to make a lasting impact.

Mark your calendars! The world record attempt will unfold at Onikan Stadium from July 16 to 21, 2024. Follow #RepYourTribe for exclusive updates and join us in celebrating Nigeria's cultural symphony. For Project/Media inquiries, contact: 07088167162 / 08037263785.
