Illino Cultural Association is a youth-driven organization which aims to promote the study, preservation and innovative use of Nigerian culture. At Illino, we believe that the indigenous culture is invaluable in national development: we use cultural studies to mould nationalist ideals and therefore a united identity, as well as to inspire sustainable innovation. Through our work, we look to create a Nigeria where culture, unity and sustainable innovation work hand-in-hand.
Our Mission & Vision Statement
Illuminate, Inspire, Innovate
To use art to illuminate the beauty in Nigerian culture; to inspire Nigerian youth to engage themselves with the advancement of the country through cultural and leadership education; to work towards influencing culturally-informed sustainable development in Nigeria.
What we do
We are committed to the study, preservation and innovative use of Nigerian culture. Our team has created a research-based creative arts program, through which we create narratives that entertain youth while educating them on indigenous culture.
We are launching our revised co-curricular program which allows youth to explore the interaction between indigenous culture, entrepreneurship and innovation.
