Tourism plays an important role in today’s economy, with tourist centres and attractions serving to open minds to possibilities, the beauty of nature, and the aesthetics of life. It has boosted cultural integration like no time in history, representing visual presentations of lifestyles and culture.
We usually look at the economic value of tour centres in any society and hardly have conversations on the effect tour centres have on cultures and human interaction.
Consequently, these spots have also become interesting venues for brand experiential events.
The Jabi Lake is arguably one of the most popular tour places in Abuja. No wonder it has a shopping mall just beside it. Jabi Lake is a water body formed from a man-made earth dam that was initially created to provide water to the residents of Abuja. After the construction of the bigger Lower Usuma Dam, the reservoir became a fishing and tourism attraction. In 2007, an area surrounding the lake was named Jabi Lake Park. Social events are held within the park and the lake provides activities for fun-seekers.
Thought Pyramid Art Centre was established to meet a need for the art to be professionally housed and managed with the needed expertise. The name of the gallery was derived from a ‘thought’ of a symbol that can be identified with the cradle of civilisation which historical can be found in Egypt. And it is in Egypt that you can find the ‘Pyramid’. Hence, the name, Thought Pyramid Art Centre. If you visit a gallery outside of Nigeria, you will attest to the fact that a gallery is where art finds its bearing, and the artist bears his or her muse.
