Become a Festival volunteer and play a vital role in making Ubumuntu Arts Festival an unforgettable experience.

At Ubumuntu we depend hugely on enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to help make the festival a success. If you want to trade your time and knowledge for the exciting and challenging experience of working for an international festival just contact us with your ideas about how you could get involved.

We will also need a team of volunteers to engage the festival guests during the festival. Tasks will entail: greeting the audiences at venues and welcome our national and international visitors. As a festival, we put our audience at the heart of everything we do; our volunteers are at the front line of welcoming our audience into ’our home’.

All volunteers must be 18 years and above. Please note you may be selected at random for vetting.


If you’re a leader of a music school, theatre group, arts collective, college course, society or voluntary agency and you would like your group to become involved, drop us a line.

At Ubumuntu Arts Festival we are constantly looking for new and inspiring national and international performances to provide a diverse and rich program. Ubumuntu is the Kinyarwanda word for “being human” making that the theme of our festival. Performances can center around any social issues that affect humanity including conflict, healing, and peace building. Additionally we have special topic days where we put the spotlight on specific categories, like children and women in 2016.

If you are interested in contributing with your performance, send us a short abstract of what you have in mind along with some video material if available!
