Bayimba International Festival Of The Arts
Kampala, Uganda
Mid September
Description
Bayimba Cultural Foundation recognises the relevance of arts and culture in social and economic development as well as individual human development. It recognises the potential of the arts and creative industries and has been dedicated to contribute to making Uganda a significant hub for arts and culture on the African continent. To achieve its goal, the Foundation has organised a wide range of activities, ranging from annual festivals – most notably (since 2008) the Bayimba International Festival of the Arts and (since 2010) a series of Bayimba Regional Festivals – and extensive training programmes for artists and other actors (such as arts managers, arts journalists) to debates and discussions about arts and culture and cultural and artistic exchanges. In delivering its programmes and objectives, it has gained a reputation far beyond the confined borders of Uganda of offering “excellence in creativity”. The programmes and activities of the Foundation have already had a profound effect on the state of arts and culture in Uganda. They have catalyzed important changes for artists and other actors and have contributed to enhanced cooperation and collaboration amongst actors. To leave a lasting mark on the sector and society at large, the Foundation is resolved to make further investments in the sector in conjunction with its ever growing national, regional and international network of partners and supporters.
