The event will have active participation of African diaspora who are returning to Ghana for the first time. It will also celebrate and showcase Ghanaians who have been out of the country for years and are doing well in business and personal life. Connecting African descents from across the globe to Africans living in Ghana will prove the resilience of the African spirit to unite and build a better future after years of challenges and separation.
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.
