About Us

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.
