PANAFEST is a cultural event held every two years for people of African descent and founded on the premises that the arts, particularly theatre, are powerful tools of communication and healing and that a people need to create new expressions and commemorations and platforms for dialogue to provide the inspiration for mobilizing energies for moving on to greater heights.
It is a cultural vehicle for bringing Africans on the continent and in the Diaspora together around the issues raised by slavery which remain suppressed. PANAFEST addresses the most traumatic interruption that ever occurred in the natural evolution of African societies which among other traumas, profoundly eroded the self confidence and freedom for self determination of a whole people.
