Call for Artists 2014 – International Festival

7th EDITION, 19th – 21st September 2014

Bayimba Cultural Foundation takes credit for having established the three-day Bayimba International Festival of the Arts as an important benchmark for the consumption of the finest arts. Every third week of September, Kampala comes alive as a vibrant and eventful city when an unparalleled feast of music, dance, theatre, film, and visual arts from renowned and upcoming artists is brought to Kampala.

Since its first edition in 2008, a wide variety of known and upcoming artists from Uganda, East Africa and beyond have performed at the different stages of the Bayimba International Festival of the Arts. The 7th edition of the Bayimba International Festival is scheduled from 19th – 21st September 2014 in the city centre of Kampala, Uganda. We will again bring to life a true experience of the arts, packed with creativity, passion and energy.

Artists of all disciplines are invited to submit their applications to join for the 7th edition of the festival. Applications are accepted until 30th April 2014. You are requested to submit the following information (in case you submit your application by email, please limit your submission to 5MB):

  • A completed entry form (download)
  • A profile/short biography (max. 800 words) with recent picture(s).
  • A presentation of your work (in case of music/film: one or two of your recordings on CD, DVD or MP3)
  • A technical rider/data sheet

We will confirm receipt of your submission and assess your application. Please note that due to the many submissions received, we will only be able to respond to successful applicants.

A modest performance fee will be offered to participating artists. For artists from outside Uganda modest accommodation, local transport and per diem will be provided. Artists from outside Uganda are encouraged to source for support to cover travel, visa and insurance expenses. Artists selected will receive a formal invitation to facilitate the solicitation for such support.

We thank you for your interest in participating in the Bayimba International Festival of the Arts and look forward to welcoming you to Uganda’s premium multi-arts event!
