Using Theater, Art, Dance and Music to celebrate African culture, its Heritage and the people

Macaulay Heritage Foundation was established in 2015 in Lagos, Nigeria to identify, protect and promote all legacy projects of Nigeria and Africa at large. We will use Theater, Arts, Dance and music to educate and instruct both adults and youths on our rich African culture and Heritage. The Foundation is encouraging the integration of the cultural past with the emerging technological future.

Founder and Chairman of Board
A UK trained Engineer and lover of the Arts, Gladstone’s interest has always been there from his school days in England. This keen interest was channeled into the production of a Documentary series called “People and Places” in UK on BEN TV and OBTV,  in 2003 for 2 seasons.
One of the notable Stage plays Produced by him was the “Rape of Gidiolu” at the Muson Centre, a play written and Directed by his brother Wale Macaulay.
His passion to impart Historically relevant information to our youth and impact the sense of origin and belonging, led to the formation of the foundation. Our aim is to use Stage Art and Craft, Media, Films, Documentary, Concerts and Lecture to engage the minds and to be the repository of fine, Correct Historical content for posterity.
