Uche Okpa Iroha, Finding Rest, 2010

Coming to CCA is a whole new experience. As an artist/photographer, I have attended a lot of workshops and seminars but the quality of materials and guests here is amazing. I’ve always been an apostle of indigenous platforms for African artists and CCA has positioned itself just as one. The more CCA’s we have in our space, the more artists’ with purpose and relevance this continent will produce.

It’s been fun all the way working with artists from Kenya, South Africa, Cameroon, Finland, United States and the home grown ones. The affinity is contagious and the atmosphere has been very, very cordial allowing each of us to learn from the wealth of experience made available by the facilitator of this noble project.

“On Independence and the Ambivalence of promise” represents a peoples’ search for hope and a future. The repair of a disjointed polity and search for a new paradigm that will be a true representation of what Nigeria I’m happy to be part of this new awakening as an artist. Uche Okpa-Iroha
