The Azulato Children’s Festival that takes children into a whole new world of artistic and
scientific experiences seems to have sealed its place on the children’s holiday calendar.
Happening for the second edition, the festival attracted thousands of excited children and their parents on 28th April 2019.
Families flocked the 7 Trees Gardens in Kololo for the free event and children had the opportunity to take part in hands-on arts and Science activities, interactive workshops and live performances by various Ugandan organizations and schools.
The annual festival that had its first edition in 2018 is an initiative by the Goethe Zentrum
Kampala, Uganda German Cultural Society, whose goal is to give children innovative new ways to learn and develop skills at a young age.
The event was characteristed with workshops and activities like crazy science experiments with the Mad Scientist, beatboxing, pottery, drum circles, recycling, storytelling, free face painting, board games, Capoeira, a form of martial arts and crotchet making.
Schools like Kiwatule Primary School, Blessed Toddlers Nursery and Primary School, Baraka Performers, Rays of Hope among others gave powerful stage performances through traditional and creative dances and singing. This year’s festival was even more inclusive with initiatives like Save Street Children Uganda, a home for former Street children and Home of Joy Centre for Children with Disabilities proudly presented powerful performances on the main stage and later joined in on the fun workshops and activities.
