Sanaa Theatre Awards 2016, December 14th  - Kenya National Theatre                                                                                       

This year the 4th edition of the Sanaa Theatre Awards will be held at the newly refurbished Kenya National Theatre on December 14th . We are pleased to announce that the 2016 edition will be graced by the distinguished presence of  Dr. Hassan Wario, the Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Culture and The Arts.

Sanaa Theatre Awards is an initiative of Tone Communications based at the Kenya Cultural Centre Nairobi. Each year since 2013, Tone communications, an experiential multimedia solutions organization hosts the only national theatre awards in Kenya since the defunct Mbalamwezi Theatre Awards in 2004.

According to the World Intellectual Property Organisation research the creative economy contributes 5 % of Kenya’s total GDP. The art, culture and entertainment is also the new frontier for job creation in Kenya. But recognition has been rare. The promise by H.E President Uhuru Kenyatta to set up an ultra-modern theatre facility and a film school could not have come at a better time especially after his successful initiative of a Sh 100m renovation of the Kenya National Theatre through a Public Private Partnership involving Kenya Breweries Ltd.

The Sanaa Theatre Awards 2016 is set for Wednesday, December 14th at the serene Kenya Cultural Centre within the heart of the beautiful city of Nairobi.
