The Museum of West African Art (MOWAA) recently reaffirmed its commitment to advancing conservation initiatives in the nation to advance African art and history while displaying the rich cultural richness of Nigerian and African art.

Director, MOWAA Pavilion, Ore Disu, briefed journalists on the museum’s operations as it hosted a three-day education tour dubbed “first Open Day,” saying MOWAA remains devoted to promoting and strengthening conservation efforts in Nigeria.

She stated that the event, which was hosted on the site of the Pavilion, had its first facility committed to research and conservation operations in Benin City, with an emphasis on archaeology.

Disu said that “MOWAA hopes to upgrade conservation efforts in Nigeria, ensuring that any construction work that could damage surviving remains is properly protected and training specialists to professionalise heritage practice.”

“This Open Day is a platform to foster a deeper understanding of the importance of archaeology in preserving our cultural legacy and share some of our exciting new discoveries. We are excited to get more cultural practitioners and residents in touch with the Pavilion’s work, which is already proving to be a dynamic space for research, education, and community outreach. None of this would be possible without our local and international partners, who are as committed as we are to serve communities in Nigeria.”
