UK/Nigeria 2015–2016 was a programme that aimed to engage with forty million young Nigerians (aged 18 – 35) by building new audiences for UK and Nigerian arts and culture.

It took place from September 2015 to March 2017 in cities across Nigeria including Lagos, Calabar, Abuja, Kaduna, Abeokuta and Jos, and in the UK in London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast, Cardiff and Brighton.

By increasing access to arts and culture from the two countries, the programme sought to build mutual understanding among young people in both countries and reaffirm the UK’s position as a partner for the growth of the arts and creative industries in Nigeria
