Arts Scene

Enugu, the coal City has a very healthy and burgeoning arts scene. As a result, the Coal City has always been the watering hole for the art connoisseur.

With five universities and a polytechnic famous for its arts school, all located in the heart of the city. This is why quite a lot of artists and artistes retire to Enugu to enjoy its serene ambience. It is therefore inevitable that the Coal City will become, and has become an important destination for art enthusiasts.

The Slam Master, Ike Okere, the poet who heads Enugu Zonal Station of Radio Nigeria, does his best to promote the Enugu Literary Society (ELS), while the Obi of Onitsha and the redoubtable Kevin Ejiofor have for 10 years now been promoting the Life in My City Arts Festival which climaxes with a command performance in the Coal City.
