BROKEN VOICES: A Bold Poetry Perfomance and Conversation on Social Consciousness.

The Event

We collaborated with Creationz Forum Africa to bring our #CivicArtTalks and showcasings this Friday.

Art is a powerful tool for advocacy and for making people appreciate and uphold human rights and values of democratic governance. It bridges language, geographical, cultural and traditional barriers.

Art has considerable potential in enhancing civic competence among people to be able to embrace their roles and responsibilities, demand for better service delivery while holding their leaders to account. Defying all linguistic boundaries, art is considered a universal language and therefore an ideal resource for passing on information and understand the perspectives of others while at the same time entertaining.

It is within this framework that CAF and KQ Hub Africa were seeking to promote youth civic engagement through Arts as a platform through which their voices can be heard. Through this forum young people were challenged to reflect on the current Rwenzori and share their narratives and design the kind of society they want to live in. This was done through; painting, songs, drama, poetry and essay writing among others.
