Reach A Hand Uganda has held the first ever Performing Artists Conference, a gathering that brought together over 60 artists, comedians and creatives to connect, network and learn.
Reach A Hand Uganda believes it is important for these artists to be equipped with knowledge and information on how they can enterprise and thrive amidst the pandemic or any other unprecedented events in the future.
“COVID19 has had severe effects on the lives of our cultural icons and the performing arts sector in Uganda, greatly affecting their livelihoods. The ban on public gatherings has made it nearly impossible for artists to earn money during the lockdown.” Humphrey Nabimanya, the Founder & Team Leader of Reach A Hand Uganda mentioned.
The Performing Artists Conference brought together over 60 musicians, artist managers, and other performers to discuss topics including financial management, intellectual property, personal branding and earning from Digital Distribution.
The event was remarkably successful because it brought together many stakeholders in the performing arts industry irrespective of the current times.
