Queering Spaces with hFACTOR, Lagos
The creative collective hFactor from Lagos, Nigeria is presenting its various works of recent years at M.Bassy. hFactor’s main focus is always on the artistic transformation of often unused public spaces into places full of creative energy and encounters. The founders of hFactor are Bubu Ogisi, Dolapo Osunsina, Tushar Hathiramani and Osione Itegboje. We like the wonderfully unfettered way in which hFactor performs a variety of disciplines and overcomes boundaries – from performance to party and arty to African. All founders will join us.
hFACTOR is a social enterprise born out of a simple ethos that anything is possible through creative collaboration. Found in February, 2018, the collective primarily transforms underutilized spaces into creative hubs, and engages local communities and artists to build valuable products, services, and experiences. 2018 engagements have led to the setup of our 26 Moloney space in the heart of Lagos Island, which features a multi-purpose flat on the second floor and a rooftop space with panoramic views of Lagos Island. Since inception in May, the space has hosted over 20 activities including art exhibitions, screenings, DJ showcasess, pop-up, live performances, jam sessions, dinner and cocktail parties.
Separately, community engagement activities have led to building two emerging brands in the lagos Island community, namely "Streetlights Collective", a group of musical talents who inhabit a repurposed uncompleted building to craft and record their music and host live events; and "NancyWHO?!", a permanent vintage clothing pop-up, who sources used clothing from around Lagos. Working with these brands has led to improved structures around each of their activities, and increase in their earnings potential.
