The campaign for N'GOLÁ Festival, shot by Dutch photographer Jan Hoek and Nigerian photographer Stephen Tayo, bears the name "What I want to look like in the future". The starting point of these series is connecting avant-garde, future-oriented fashion designers from Lagos to children, and allowing these children to choose and show what they want to look like in the future, illustrating this vision with pieces from the designer's collection. This underlines the power of the individual and of a child’s imagination, which is the basis for the greatest art and fashion out there. These are qualities that N’GOLÁ celebrates with this vibrant and fun campaign, which stars these children of the future.
N’GOLÁ Festival will be presented at several locations in Sao Tomé e Principe and includes commissioned projects in remarkable locations, exhibitions of the arts, gastronomic experiences, excursions to the tropical rainforest, interactive art performances across the city’s neighborhoods, fashion performances, access to workshops, talks and various music events.
Mark your calendars: an important part of the program will happen during the opening weekend that takes place on the 26th, 27th and 28th of July.
