  • Make A Change

    • The socio-cultural project Make a change is part of Breakthrough, which offers artists the opportunity to use the festival as a platform to present their work and make a name for themselves.

      Our long-standing collaboration with the Breakdance Project Uganda has led us this year to the project "She is Hip Hop".

      About She is Hip Hop

      Hip Hop and other art forms are used as tools to empower girls and women to innovate and lead as well as bring together people of different backgrounds to share and exchange practical skills, knowledge, developmental ideas, and inspiration in various areas of life.

      These are some of the activities/programs run by She is Hip Hop:

      > Free regular skills-based workshops such as dance, music, poetry, writing, art, and craft as well as discussions such as menstrual health and hygiene, mental health, raising awareness about human rights to mention a few.

      > Outreach programs in different communities within Uganda
