New Haervest Festival 2019 Is Set To Bring A ‘Self-Ish’ October To Lagos

The New Harvest Festival, an inclusive youth-oriented festival, returns this year to Lagos with its signature-themed edition titled SELF-ISH – a means to promoting mental and sexual self-care through open and real conversations. The festival is set to take place on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at Wéré House, Lekki, Lagos.

A female-led movement, New Haervest Festival was founded by Natalie Akingbaje, Honey Benson and Millza Zohouri with the aim of advancing diversity and inclusion through social change in order to create a society where love thrives.

Since December 2017, the festival has brought to life a number of youth-oriented events within Lagos and London, in which there has been an invaluable degree of conversations started, connections made and fun. The festival most recently held in London where it played host to African youth within the ages of 18-30.

Beyond entertainment, New Haervest Festival seeks to improve the lives of African youth, and this is why its founders will be introducing workshops for the first time at the SELF-ISH Lagos edition. The New Haervest festival SELF-ISH edition will see panelists that span the mental and sexual healthcare niches – speak of sexual health advocate, Harry Itie, Sarah Ojukwu of Sephora Mental Health Foundation and sexual health specialist, Ikenna Micheal Chikwem.
