The Bridge Series

About the LUN Events: The Bridge Series

The Lagos Urban Network Bridge Series is a monthly series of talk sessions, dinners, film screening nights, debates and other events that bring together professionals and students interested in their city to come together and get engaged in conversations that enrich and promote their shared interests. These interests range from mobility, technology and space to the arts and public space. The event will have a small fee of N500 for students and N1000 for non-students.

The Objective

The primary Objective of the Bridge Series is to bring together two worlds of enthusiasts who coexist in the city space, but have been set apart by societal differences; the students and the professionals they may turn out to be. This division or break in proper communication channels has resulted in professionals who are oblivious of the humanities associated with their fields of practice.


During a calendar year, the Bridge Series commenced in July and conclude April of the next year. There will be a total of 10 episodes per year and these will take place across a variety of venues in Lagos.
