sonta logoThe Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for the 2015 edition of the Annual International Conference of Society of Nigeria Theatre Artists (SONTA) has extended the deadline earlier set for the submission of abstracts.

A statement released by Caleb Nor on behalf of the Conference Convener and Executive Secretary, National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Dr. Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma, who is also a Visiting Associate Professor at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi (NSUK), says the new deadline for submission of abstracts is now Sunday, 10th May, 2015, while submission of full papers stills remains 30th June, 2015.

The extension is expected to give little more time for theatre scholars and others who wish to present papers at the conference but could not meet the 30th April, 2015 deadline earlier fixed for the submission of abstracts.

The LOC also implored interested persons to always visit the SONTA 2015 website: or go to and click on the link to get detailed information about the conference.
