10 years that have not been without their challenges, their highs and their memorable moments.

SPANFEST2013 - WISHES AND HORSES

Sarah Boulos in her capacity as Founder and Chairman of The Society for the Performing Arts in Nigeria has trained and or contributed to over five hundred individuals in the professional field. SPAN has showcased and partnered with over 100 NGO’s and Mission work as well as provided on a yearly basis over thirty jobs in the entertainment industry.

 

SPAN was created because it was viewed as a need. A need is to educate and present performing artists,  to provide them with job opportunities and present their art and for children to develop themselves in an area of education that was missing in Nigeria.

 

If and when asked, Mrs. Boulos will tell you that building SPAN was a challenge; initially she was not taken seriously but her need to build awareness and educate the audience that this was a worthwhile project that  is very much-needed in our society and industry took over.

 

What is different now…from 10 yrs ago?

 

THE STIGMA, THOUGH STILL PRESENT IS NOT AS STRONG!

 

SPAN @ 10 is a place where people are educated , entertained and inspired for more through the performing arts .
