Issue 043 Bayimba International Festival of the Arts
Bayimba International Festival of the Arts, now in its seventh edition, continues to provide more for its expanding audience. This year’s program has two performance stages, yoga classes, experimental music as well as a discussion about artist rights. The visitors come annually in the thousands to share in invigorating arts and culture. Behind the scenes workshops breathe creative life into up-and-coming artistic innovators. How does this festival continue to expand and innovate? Could it be that the Director, Faisal Kiwewa follows the ‘to do list’ he has set for the entire cultural industry? Start Journal partnered with Bayimba to send Raymond Ojakol on assignment to the regional festivals. His feature piece will be published alongside new voices from the crop of Arts Journalism Workshop trainees.
