Synopsis

The concept of Polaris or North Star, is an experimental collective created by multidisciplinary designer and award-winning technologist; Ade Olufeko. The project commenced in the Winter/Harmattan of 2019 over a period of three weeks.

We speak to an Emmy award winner, a nationally recognized architect, graphic designers, muralists, singers, performers, scientists, activists, artistic directors, music engineers, gallery owners, a yoga practitioner, an art collector, fashion stylists, chefs and university professors among many others. Beyond a our platform the concept of Visual Collaborative is inevitably seen universally in its everyday use regardless of socioeconomic status. We hope is that the literacy of the creative industry and its different facets through our platform coveys its commitment to the field of humanities.
