Driven by its passion for art and the development of the Nigerian culture, leading Nigerian insurance provider, AXA Mansard Insurance Plc has thrown its weight behind the launch of a modern arts theatre â€˜Terra Kulture Arenaâ€™ launched by Terra Kulture.
Located in Victoria Island and first of its kind privately owned theatre in Nigeria, the 400-seater state-of-the-art theatre was conceived out of the desire to fill a significant gap in the theatre industry. With this achievement, Terra Kulture has proven to be the one-stop destination for culture and art enthusiasts
Over the years, Terra Kulture has developed and maintained its reputation as the hub for stage productions by both local and international companies. This initiative of the company not only gives the theatre industry a boost but also reinforces the position of Lagos as the leading destination for premium entertainment in Nigeria.
Upon commencement of full operations, the theatre will also double as a movie screening venue and will be set to host a range of shows, plays and musicals. It will also play the challenging role of providing Nigerians with a wide schedule of theatre, comedy, music and dance.
Speaking on the decision to support the initiative, the Chief Marketing Officer of AXA Mansard Insurance Plc, Mr. Kola Oni noted that, â€œNigerian Arts provide everyone, a beautiful platform of expression. Our culture and heritage are our pride as a nation and we must do well to propagate it.
â€œThe Terra Kulture Arena is a positive sign of the rebound in appreciation for Nigerian Art & Culture and AXA Mansard is glad to be a part of this legacy. Promoted and driven by Terra Kulture CEO, Bolanle Austen Peters, there is no doubt of its ability to deliver on its purpose.â€
According to Bolanle Austen Peters, Terra Kulture CEO, Terra Kulture Arena is a dream come true which was realised as a result of commitment, determination and support. â€œWe are truly grateful to AXA Mansard for their show of faith by supporting our quest to re-engineer theatre business in Nigeria through Terra Kulture Arena and we look forward to the exciting performances lined at the state-of-the-art Arenaâ€.
