Life in my city art festival (LIMCAF) is an annual event that commenced in 2007 to encourage artistic creativity and empower young aspiring artists in Nigeria. It is the largest annual gathering of visual artists and stakeholders in the country. The festival features exhibitions, lectures, and workshops that provide young artists with a platform to showcase their skills and discover new talents. It has also been a springboard into professionalism for many young artists.

The theme of LIMCAF 2023 is “FIX IT,” which calls for a holistic response to the unprecedented challenges that humanity is facing. The world is passing through a critical stage, and it is essential for everyone to act well and play their part in addressing these challenges.
