Artyrama in association with leading Nigerian artist Alimi Adewale presents "The Heroine Project", an exploration of some of Nigeria's most notable women.
Adewale identifies 8 women who each in their own way contributed significantly to welfare of Nigerians and span across multiple fields. The artists explains;
"A heroine is a woman admired for her courage and her outstanding achievements or noble qualities. She is also a woman who, in the opinion of others, has personal qualities that make them a role model. This project was born from the realisation of how men are made icons compared to women in Nigeria and the purpose of this project is to give more focus to these unsung heroines."
