The concept of having young arts and festival managers from around the world in one space - learning, sharing and discussing about their festivals and working jointly on future initiatives - is a great opportunity Bayimba will bring to East Africa in partnership with The Festival Academy.

The Atelier for Young Festival Managers - Kampala 2021 is part of the EFA RISE project implemented with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
