Artists play a massive role in shaping and contributing to our communities using their art that addresses social issues, advocates awareness and change, which can ultimately open minds to act towards making a difference. In this issue of Glamour, we draw inspiration from the arts. Each section in the magazine represents different forms and mediums of the artistic world. Here are the top five things not to miss in our new issue:

Tiwa talks to Glamour about growing up in bustling Lagos, moving to London, #ENDSARS and life in general.
