Keeping Our Stories Alive
Arts and Culture is part of one’s daily life, and one’s daily life is part of Art and Culture.
Our foundation aims to create and support spaces and artists doing new, interesting, groundbreaking and accessible works of art that can be shared with audiences in Uganda and around the world.
Kampala International Theatre Festival
Kampala International Theatre Festival will be a 5-day festival that will take place from 23rd to 27th November 2022 at Ndere Cultural Centre and National Theatre.
The festival will have plays like Hibernation (Germany), KTO TAM (Russia/Spain), For My Negativity (Uganda), My Vagina Was Not Buried With Him (South Africa), People of Mine (Uganda), A Country Funeral (Uganda) and Audio Dramas.
Mid career and Established Playwrights Residence
Tebere Arts Foundation Limited will produce a 3 months Mid Career and Established Playwrights Residency where 3 mid-career and or established playwrights are commissioned to create and or develop a new work of theatre or reimagine an old work in a new way as a theatre piece. The Residency will have a series of activities where the selected Playwrights interested in theatre and performance for live audiences will be given an opportunity to work with dramaturgs and where possible stage directors and actors to develop their new work.
The residency will offer dramaturgical feedback for the script development and financial support so that the writers can focus on developing their work. In addition, Tebere Arts Foundation makes connections between the playwright and other theatre stakeholders or spaces that might be interested in the playwright’s work.
Keep our Stories Alive.
We create systems and contribute towards supporting artistic platforms and infrastructures in Eastern Africa that are sustainable and focused on professionalism, ingenuity, new, creative and inventive ways of thinking and working, as well as exposure and exchange.
The organization supports works of theatre that bring professional theatre-makers and young artists and or students of performing arts from different universities across the country to perform together, thus creating opportunities for up and coming artists and students to work with and learn from established theatre-makers from Uganda and elsewhere.
"Great theatre is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to."
We pride ourselves in doing amazing work in the theatre spaces. We have created programs like Emerging Artists Intensive Lab, Playwrights Residency and Kampala International Theatre Festival among others.
