The Bayimba Academy is the education program of the Bayimba Cultural Foundation. We strive to empower artists through creativity, innovation, and collaboration with our curriculum. The Academy offers a comprehensive range of training and exchange programs designed to enhance creative, professional and entrepreneurial skills among artists, thereby stimulating inter- and intra-disciplinary collaborations and improving their career opportunities in their chosen field. The Academy also provides both artistic and entrepreneurial/managerial skills to other stakeholders like journalists and arts managers. Over the next five years the Foundation will develop its current informal training program into a structured arts education program to be hosted at the future Bayimba Centre for Visual and Performing Arts. The 2 year professional training program being developed at the East African Global Music Campus will become an integral part of this program.
