FACE Nigeria Project is designed to connect people of African descents to trace their ancestral lineage, experience their homeland, learn about their history, business culture and traditions of Africa through heritage tourism. The idea was harnessed due of the influx of tourists and Africans in the diaspora from across the globe coming to celebrate the different cultural festivals, identify with their homeland, find closure and being a part of culinary arts and the African experience.
FACE Nigeria Project is aimed at bridging cultural and educational gap, because we believe a society that cannot preserve and uphold its cultural heritage will have no historical legacy to leave behind for the next generation. With Africa's rich culture, competitiveness and unlimited natural resources, Africa is becoming a force to reckon with in the global economy. Therefore, the project enables people of African descent who are passionate about cultural arts preservation and tourism development, to assist in these efforts by sharing their expertise, knowledge and innovative ideas, to reposition Africa in the 21st century.
FACE Nigeria Project explores opportunities for advancing sustainable development, using tourism, arts and culture to nurture, strengthens bilateral relations and cultural ties between Nigeria, Africans in the Diaspora and people who are passionate about African arts and culture through festivals, exhibition, trade shows, seminars and exchanges, as well as give global exposure to indigenous artistes, producers and authors, promote heritage agencies, businesses, talents, public and private sectors for urban, tourism and environment development.
