To all those that were there for the past sold out and epic rave editions, we salute you!

To anyone that didn’t make it, come find out why UBUNTU RAVE is one of the most talked about rave party for the Undergrounds. An astonishing playground of immersive, experiential Afro-centric revelry born out of East Africa’s arts community, with a cheeky twist of the Afro inspired Fashion, Music and Dance.

Our collective creative imaginations have been running wild whilst preparing a night long celebration of African heritage through Fashion, Film, Music, Dance and Art. The Ubuntu Rave started as a pilot project dubbed “Wakanda Party Uganda,” an idea birthed as a result of the inspirational Marvel blockbuster movie, “Black Panther”. Due to mass appeal among the event-goers, it became a mainstay and is headed for its 5th edition

We bring you an amazing line up of deejays who’ll play an array of genres including but not limited to Afro-beats, Afro-electronic, Gqom, House fusion, percussion and the goal is to appeal to every reveler’s music taste, a boisterous cultural ensemble with emphatically rhythmic African drum sounds and beats to groove to all night long.

Note: As usual, Dress code is strictly AFRICAN. Free Tribal face painting at Ubuntu Rave venue. The music and drums stop only when the last person leaves the dance-floor.

Sofar Sounds (Live Music)
Oct 6 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

 

Venue: Secret Location

More information: https://www.sofarsounds.com/cities/kampala/events/28740

Sofar Sounds is reimagining the live event experience through curated, intimate performances in 441 cities around the world.

At Sofar, we like to ask: who’s ever been to a bad gig?

For some, the crowd was too loud or maybe the beer was warm. For others, the sound system wasn’t doing the artist justice. Or maybe someone was in the line of view, snapping selfies all night. Whatever the experience, it just wasn’t what you hoped or expected. The magic of a live event experience has been lost.

Sofar Sounds was founded to bring back that magic.

In 2009, Rafe Offer invited some friends over to a London flat for a low-key, intimate gig. Eight people gathered in the living room to listen to live music performed by friend and musician Dave Alexander. They shared a drink, and sat on the floor, attentively listening to the music. The room was so quiet, you could hear the clock ticking in the background.

Quickly, what started as a hobby in London spread into a global community for artists and audiences to come together in unique and welcoming spaces – with an added element of surprise – to share, discover, create and, hopefully make a friend or find their new favorite band along the way.

Today, Sofar Sounds is a community of thousands of artists, hosts, fans, travelers and more, putting on hundreds of secret, intimate events per month, across 441 cities around the world.

You’re invited. Come on in.

Beyond Education 2019 Conference (Kampala) – Developing Changemakers
Nov 9 all-day

 

Venue: Mestil Hotel, 20 Barracks Drive , Nsambya

 

Development experts forecast that Africa’s youth population will outgrow economic opportunities on the continent in a little over a decade; this means that education and employment opportunities will decline even further than they are today unless urgent interventions are made. With more than a quarter of the world’s under-25 population projected to be living in Africa by 2030, our continent is faced with the exciting challenge of how to maximize this youth bulge.

While the rest of the developed world prepares for the 4th Industrial Revolution, African countries are challenged to both pick up the pace of development and prepare for even more rapid transformation. How can we pivot our youth population to address our grand challenges and harness our greatest opportunities? What role can young changemakers play in transforming education, healthcare, climate change, governance, infrastructure, urbanization and job creation?

How can we maximize opportunities inherent in agriculture, natural resource management, wildlife conservation, tourism, arts, design and culture? What role will transformative education and network development opportunities play in enabling this new path for the continent’s youth? How has African Leadership Academy begun to respond to these challenges and opportunities, and how can forward-thinking parents and mentors get involved?

This conference brings together senior executives from African Leadership Academy, education leaders from around the world, and a cohort of young African changemakers under 30 to explore the future of education, leadership and development in Africa. Since 2008, African Leadership Academy has been at the forefront of transforming education by developing a powerful network of changemakers whose collective work will address the continent’s greatest challenges and accelerate our growth trajectory. Through the Beyond Education conference series, we are delighted to share these learnings with parents, students, education leaders and the public.

The conference is primely designed for parents whose children are under the age of 18, high school students, education organizations, youth development organizations, and others who work with youth.

Join us at the 2019 Beyond Education conferences, holding in six key African cities. Register today, and come with your family!

The 8th African Population Conference
Nov 18 – Nov 22 all-day

The Union for African Population Studies (UAPS) is proud to organize the 8th African Population Conference (APC), to be held on November 18-22, 2019 in Kampala, Uganda. Under the theme “Harnessing Africa’s Population Dynamics for Sustainable Development: 25 Years After Cairo And Beyond”, the conference will bring together researchers, policy makers, programme implementers, civil society, donors and sectoral influencers to discuss issues relevant to African population, including (but not limited to) national, regional and continental investments to address rapid urbanization, population growth, sexual and reproductive health, technology, youth, the demographic dividend and capacity building. A goal of the conference is to assess how Africa, 25 years after the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, can harness its unique population dynamics for sustainable development, using rigorous evidence to establish roadmaps to respond to these critical development challenges.

 

Established in 1984, the Union for African Population Studies (UAPS) is the only population-focused organization that represents all regions of Africa, bridging linguistic and geographical barriers to foster networking, knowledge sharing and learning across the continent. The APC is organized every four years and the 8th APC aims to be the largest convening on population and development in Africa yet, with over 1,000 participants expected (900 participants attended the 7th APC held in 2015 in Pretoria, South Africa). The conference programme will include plenaries, ordinary scientific sessions, sponsored research leader sessions, pre- and post-conference side meetings, training sessions, exhibitions and a Population Impact incubator. Through the sponsored leader sessions, the 8th APC will offer research leaders in the field of population and development the opportunity to design and host break-out sessions on an approved topic of their choice, with the purpose of bringing together experts on population and development to engage in solution-oriented dialogue. Details for the call for papers will be communicated in March 2019.
