YorubaName is partnering with IFRA Nigeria to take the project on the road next month – first in Ibadan on July 1, 2016, then in Lagos on July 6, 2016. It’s going to be a huge meetup that’ll talk about the YorubaName journey so far, as well an opportunity for participants to directly contribute to the project.

The Ibadan event will also feature a special screening of Family Name, a 1998 documentary by Macky Alston, from 2 -4pm. It’s going to be organised by the University of Ibadan film club, and the venue is Drapers Hall, University of Ibadan.

In Lagos, the YorubaName team will be at the Goethe Institut, and there’ll be an open dialogue with participants. This means you get to ask them anything about their project, plus there’ll be souvenirs. This event will happen from 12 – 1:30pm.

The events are free but you have to register before the dates. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, register here for Ibadan, and here for Lagos.
