In a remarkable display of organizational prowess, the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) successfully conducted its executives’ retreat across various states from January 24th to January 31st, 2024. The week-long event, aimed at fostering knowledge advancement and competence among its members, witnessed significant participation and impactful lectures.


The retreat was meticulously organized by a committee inaugurated on November 6th, 2023 led by Toyosi Adesanya, with a mandate to ensure the event’s success, mobilize participation across all levels of leadership, and source competent resource persons to enrich the participants.



After thoughtful consideration of economic factors, the committee decentralized the retreat, choosing Ogun, Oyo, Lagos, Osun, Kwara, and Ondo as venues. Additionally, FCT, Ekiti, and Ondo Chapters jointly hosted the event at Akure, Ondo State.


Distinguished individuals such as Dr. Abdul Ganiu Okunnu, Prof. Bode Sowande, Prof. Sola Fosudo, Prof Siyan Oyeweso, Prof Taofeeq Olaide Nasir, and Prof Jelil Ojuade served as resource persons, delivering insightful lectures tailored to the needs of TAMPAN members.



Ogun State: The program kicked off successfully at Fed-Evento Palace, Ogun State, with 213 participants and the honoration of Oba Onipokia for his support.


Oyo State: Intellectual Property protection took center stage at the Cultural Centre in Oyo State, with Prof. Bode Sowande emphasizing its significance. The Oyo State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatunbosun, advocated for a synergy between TAMPAN and the government.


Lagos State: LTV8 hosted the event in Lagos, where Prof. Sola Fosudo praised TAMPAN for its proactive stance, with the Global President, Otunba Bolaji Amusan, encouraging members to seize the opportunities presented.


Osun State: The retreat in Osogbo saw the National Director General of National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mallam Issa Lanre Onilu, seeking collaboration with TAMPAN to amplify official messages. Prof Siyan Oyeweso addressed the need for organizational conflict reduction.

A total of 770 identifiable participants across states were accredited, with recommendations including the establishment of health committees, holding retreats biennially, and involving the TAMPAN Executives Retreat (TER) Committee in collaborations with the National Orientation Agency.


TERCOM expressed gratitude to the global president, all its elected and appointed officers from Local, State and National, CWC, NEC, and Governors for their support. The committee urged non-compliant officers to present their Certificates of Participation before resuming their duties.


TAMPAN members have not only enriched their knowledge but have also set the stage for future collaborations and improvements within the association. The success of the retreat underscores TAMPAN’s commitment to the continuous growth and development of its members.
