The first set of applicants that scaled the keenly contested audition stages of the Stella Damasus Arts Foundation (SDAF), are expected to begin a free three-month training next week. The 43 students, who were selected based on their audition performance, will receive intensive training from volunteer professionals in drama, singing and fine arts.
In a bid to give back to the society and help Nigerian youths discover their potential, actress Stella, under the auspices of SDAF, had held a three-day audition at Zamunda, Ologun Agbaje Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.
According to the multiple award-winning actress, the free programme will train and equip young people in various areas of arts, ensuring that at the end of the training, participants will have better exposure and opportunity to become professionals in their chosen fields.
The free creative arts audition was open to young people of between the ages of 16 and 30 years and from all walks of life, regardless of their educational background.
