Nyakuron Cultural Centre

      Nyakuron Cultural Centre was built following the 1972 Addis Ababa Agreement, which ended the First Sudanese Civil war. It was opened in 1976. It’s a vast complex with large gardens, an outdoor stage, an auditorium, a night club and a casino. Nyakuron Cultural Centre hosts cultural and sports events, such as the Hagana Peace Festival, the Juba Film Festival, the Kilkilu Ana Comedy show, international kickboxing competitions and art exhibitions. The centre is also rented out for private events such as weddings. It’s the headquarters of many South Sudanese artists, but not everyone can afford to rent it out and organise events.
