About Panafest

The PANAFEST Festival was inspired by and takes its source from a paper written in 1980 entitled "Proposal for a Historical Drama Festival in Cape Coast" by Dr. Mrs. Efua Sutherland, who was a distinguished Ghanaian Dramatist and Pan-Africanist. In 1991 the idea gained root and took shape in an expanded form as the Pan-African Historical Theater Festival (PANAFEST). In October of that year, PANAFEST was officially launched and in December of the same year, the national phase of the festival was held in Cape Coast, Ghana after a series of activities which included a national playwriting competition, organized seminars, and workshops on Pan-Africanism across the country.
