LaBa! Arts Festival 2017

Art is for everyone! The 11th LaBa! Arts Festival themed Ubuntu is back on Saturday 27th May, from 11:00am to 8:00pm on Bukoto Street, Kamwokya. The term Ubuntu in Shona, or Obumu in Luganda, means humanity or community spirit, which is best illustrated in the Ndebele proverb: “umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu” (“a person is a person through other persons”).

In reminiscence of how the festival once has been conceived, the visual arts will be at the core of the festival, representing eleven collective installations out of which the audience is invited to vote for their favourite. The LaBa! Audience Award will allow a member of the winning collective to travel to Chale Wote Street Art Festival in Accra in August 2017 with the Moving Africa programme by Goethe-Institut.

With many interactive and participatory projects, the festival as a daytime event addresses a large audience, including families with children.

LaBa! is the oldest street art festival in Uganda that focuses on sharing art in hybrid places, in this case, the street.  LaBa! is organized by Goethe-Zentrum Kampala/ Ugandan German Cultural Society in collaboration with a diverse artist-led committee that selects the pieces to showcase every year. This year, the selection team comprises of Abdul Kinyenya, Ian Mwesiga, Robinah Nansubuga, Ife Piankhi, and Moses Serubiri, coordinated by Acaye Elizabeth Pamela and directed by Anja Göbel.

We thank our partners and sponsors: SM Spear Motors Ltd, Wavah Water, Sadolin, Bin-It Services Ltd, GraphiConsult, KCCA, Kampala Film School, Alliance Française Kampala.

This is your day! Come have fun with your family.
