dc.description.abstract The drama festival, an annual calendar event organised by the Ministry of Education (MoE) in Kenya, is largely a co-curricular activity, approached by many participants from the perspective of competition rather than the advancement of peace. The general public in Kenya has not yet realised the potential of the festival to establish and sustain a culture of harmonious existence among people of different ethnic identities. Through the use of research based evidence, this brief advocates for the mainstreaming of peace based themes in the structure and delivery of drama festivals within the MoE framework as well as in other co-curricular initiatives of the ministry - such as the music festival, science congress, ball games and other sports. The brief advocates for the realisation of the eight national goals of education through the use of non-formal educational experiences that not only entertain but also educate diverse groups of people.84 This brief is addressed to officials in the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology, National Cohesion and Integration Commission in Kenya, as well as financial partners supporting the drama festivals, and peace based civil society organisations. en
