Jalada Mobile Literary & Arts Festival
3 – 31 March 2017
12 cities across East Africa
Jalada Mobile Literary & Arts Festival is a hybrid between a traditional festival and a bus literary and art tour, covering 12 cities/towns in five countries across East Africa (Kenya, Uganda, DRC, Rwanda, and Tanzania) from March 3rd – March 31st 2017.
The Festival will showcase new art to new audiences, celebrate cultural diversity through multi-lingual performances and exhibitions, revitalize cross-cultural interchanges between Africa and the world, and interrogate the place of African languages and translation in the 21st century.
It is a unique concept that combines the adventures of travel writing, digital mapping of literary landscapes and tour mini-documentary making with an expanded retinue of traditional literary discussions and performances in Nairobi, Nakuru, Kisumu, Kampala, Kabale, Goma, Kigali, Mwanza, Arusha, Dar, Zanzibar, and Mombasa.
