With political turbulence and violation of human rights at an all time high, what is the role of artists to communicate using performance to address their concerns?
Tuzinne Festival is an annual festival that combines performing arts and human rights advocacy by providing a platform for organisations to educate the public while dance artists share their experiences, ideas, and views about human rights violations and advocacy through their creative talents.
Tuzinne Festival also aims to address the urgent need for a common platform in order to create a network for professionally trained artists within the contemporary and traditional dance in East Africa.
