National Theatre Association of Malawi is a community based non-profit making organization that creates sustainable development projects focusing on and around societies most vulnerable through theatrical activities.
The National Theatre Association of Malawi was established in 1988 as Drama Association of Malawi (DAM). In a couple of the succeeding years, it changed its name to National Theatre Association of Malawi (NTAM) to reflect other elements that go with contemporary theatrical platform such as dances and singing. The Association has since then remained a coordinating body for theatrical arts in the country. NTAM was formed to promote, protect and mediate issues involving theatre arts in Malawi.
