Tebere Arts Foundation Limited is a company limited by guarantee that was registered in September 2018. It has three founders who are all artists; a playwright/producer/performer, an Actor/Comedian and an Entrepreneur/Singer/Actress.

After working for close to ten years with the Sundance Institute Program, writing plays, soft-producing, curating and producing an international theatre festival in Kampala, Asiimwe Deborah Kawe and two of her colleagues, Kenneth Kimuli and Gladys Oyenbot, found it fitting to join forces and form an organization that would among other things create collaborative new work of theatre with artists in Uganda and those outside of her borders; to support, develop, produce, curate and commission new work of theatre that is innovative, topical, challenging, pushing boundaries, and could be performed in non-conventional spaces.

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.

Our Vision

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.
