We will confirm receipt of your submission and assess your application. By the end of August 2017 you will be informed about the status of your application. Please note that we will be offering very limited rehearsal time. Therefore, your production needs to be ready for staging should you be selected to participate in the festival.

What we offer:

  • A modest performance fee to participating artists.
  • For artists from outside Uganda, ground transportation, modest accommodation and modest per diem. You are encouraged to source for support to cover travel, visa incl. insurance. Artists selected will receive a formal invitation to facilitate the solicitation for such support.

We thank you for your interest in participating in the Kampala International Theatre Festival and look forward to welcoming you to Uganda in November 2017!
