Weekend Agenda: Prizes, The Won’t Do List, Art, More

How do you move around?

If convenience is your goal, it’s hard to beat taking cabs but the comfort of requesting a car from your phone and relaxing in the back seat is not the full picture.

Before you dive into this weekend’s agenda, take a look at what we learned from a whole year of taking cabs. Your eyes will open.

1. The ‘Won’t Do’ List

We’re so fixated on the positivity of getting things done that most of us have never considered the value of making a list of things we don’t want to do.

But if we’re taking Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s word for it, we all should be making ‘won’t do’ lists to make our lives better.

2. Of Note

Playing the long game, how to be a good creature, sardines could help you live longer, conjoined twins separated in Abuja and the bombing of Borrusia Dortmund football club.

3. Try, Maybe?

The Commonwealth Foundation is offering grants of up to 200,000 pounds to projects strengthening civic voices. Get details here.

The Swiss Re Foundation is accepting entries for its Resilience Award. Businesses facilitating better access to healthcare for households can apply for a share of the $700,000 prize now.

The Brunel International African Poetry Prize is now accepting submissions. 3,000 pounds is at stake. Everything else you need to know is here.

4. Goings-On

Art X Lagos is finally here. The amazing art fair begins tomorrow at 11:00 am at The Civic Centre, Victoria Island. Tap Lifestyle on the ALAT app to get tickets.

The Lagos Poetry Festival continues throughout the weekend and you can attend the festival concert at the MUSON Centre, Onikan this Friday. 3,000 naira will get you through the door.

The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives goes to stage this Friday from 7:00 pm at Terra Kulture, Victoria Island. Tickets are 5,000 naira at the venue.

See more events and movies on the ALAT app.

5. Extra Helpings

Become great. Seriously.

Will Smith is an agent again, sort of.

Mapping a Kenyan slum is an act of heroism. (It’s tough to argue this from your couch.)

For your listening pleasure, stream the second part of H.E.R.’s I Used To Know Her EP (Deezer, Apple Music) and Nao’s superb Saturn (Deezer, Apple Music). It’s an R&B binge.

Have a good time this weekend, okay? Okay.
