SPAN is the ‘Society for Performing Arts in Nigeria’, an NGO set up in February 2005 with the aim of creating a world-class standard for performing arts education and expression in Nigeria. Span offers exceptional opportunities in dance, music, theatre and visual arts to talented Nigerian youth, by inspiring, training, and empowering them, so that their creativity is unleashed.
One of SPAN’s main objectives is the empowerment of youths with various opportunities through SKILLSET DEVELOPMENT, and in 8 years of existence, we have consistently trained youths with appropriate skills and techniques that can help them build careers as well as facilitate the continuity of Nigerian art.
The African people are known to have very rich cultural and artistic expressions that have shaped the artistic world for centuries especially in the areas of dance, music, drama and visual art; SPAN takes pride in these forms of art and is committed to its preservation and promotion.
SPAN as its name suggests, is more than an Organisation; It is a Community, a haven for the unseen to be seen; A Society, enabling artists soar beyond their wildest dreams; A Bridge, bringing together various forms of art, to ignite life-changing productions
Our Vision is to build a Performing Arts Centre where the richness and diversity of Nigeria’s culture and tradition can be nurtured, preserved and showcased for a unique experience.
We aim to be Nigeria’s foremost center for entertainment, education, inspiration and escape, through various forms of performing arts including dance, music, drama and painting.
To present, educate and create Nigerian and International performers who, through their God-given talent transform lives, and bring change to their community
