Having registered a successful first edition of their event in May 2018, organizers of the Azulato Children’s Festival have announced the second edition which they say will be bigger and better.
This year’s edition, they say, will involve more hands-on activities, interactive workshops and performances as the aim for the festival is to promote the arts and sciences as an immersive learning experience for children to develop their talents and grow their self-confidence.
They also say the festival is aimed at awakening children´s creativity and imagination and make them have a positive and exciting experience, in order to engage and interest them in a long term in Arts and Sciences.
Barbara Sommer, the Director Goethe Zentrum Kampala, says they are looking forward to welcoming all children and their families to a Sunday full of creativity, fun and excitement come April 28, 2019.
According to Barbra, children have been invited to participate in activities such as drum circles, dance workshops with the Breakdance Project Uganda, martial arts, storytelling, mural painting, pottery, drawing, learning about robotics and digital animation among others.
The fest is going to be a free event.
“Since a lot of the activities at last year’s edition of the festival have been a great success, we decided to bring some of them back on a larger and improved scale so that even more children can benefit and enjoy them,” said Sanna Anselm, the new GZK Cultural Coordinator.
“We also partnered with new organizations and businesses to offer a greater variety of hands-on activities and workshops. We are expecting extraordinary performances on stage from various schools and organizations, as well as activities full of action, fun, and creativity for children”.
Azulato Children’s Festival is an inclusive festival for all children regardless of background and differences in abilities. It is meant to give all children a chance to enjoy learning through participation in fun activities. The whole family is welcome to participate.
