Azulato Children’s Festival
The Azulato Children’s Festival is a one-day event that takes children into a whole new world of artistic and scientific experiences. Curiosity is the biggest potential of a child’s early years. Therefore we provide a fun and creative learning environment with interactive hands-on-activities, workshops and performances to awaken and nourish our children’s appetite for art and science. The second edition of Azulato, after being invented in 2018, will take place on the 28th April 2019.
We believe that innovation derives from creativity, and that independent and constructive thinking can best be achieved through active experimentation. Our festival engages children in various activities and encourages them to express their creativity and to discover science mechanisms. As one African proverb goes, our best seeds and our most fruitful fields are our children. Let’s support them in growing their talents and self-confidence!
Organized by the Goethe Zentrum Kampala/Uganda German Cultural Society, Azulato is a marriage of two Luganda words “okuzula” meaning “to discover” and “abato” meaning “young children”, hence Azulato signifying childlike enthusiasm for discovery.
Azulato Children’s Festival is an inclusive festival for all children regardless of background and differences in abilities.
