The Kampala International Theater Festival is a 4-day festival organized each year in partnership between BAYIMBA Foundation and Tebere Arts Foundation as a platform that offers development of professionalism among theater practitioners and broadens access to Theatre by supporting and facilitating the presentation of Theatre productions.

This is achieved through the various workshops, jam sessions, productions and networking sessions that are programmed during the Festival.

The 7th edition is supposed to happen in November 2020 but due to Covid19 and how fast it spreads, we have decided to postpone the physical edition until further notice. We hope that an in-person gathering for our festival can be held again in 2021.

DJ Lwanda

By Eric Wainaina (Kenya)

DJ LWANDA is a story of the forgotten people of Kwa Maji, a slum in Nairobi, at the time of the General Election. The impending election is stirring all too familiar tribal differences and conflicts. DJ Lwanda, the local community radio DJ strives to stir the community to action and unity against the destructive political powers.
