This year, for the first time, the international End of the Weak cultural exchange program will take place in Uganda, Africa.
EOW Uganda will host 24 participants from 9 countries to experience Ugandan culture and connect with local artists and people.
This year’s project involves:
— art and music workshops
— music, dance and urban art collaborations recorded, performed and exhibited
— an all-day festival scheduled October 25th where workshop participants will display and perform their creative work
— public panel discussion with local community to share their experiences with Hip Hop culture with the visiting international artists
— grand finalé performance by local and international MCs, dancers, street artists and DJs
The entire cultural exchange program will take place October 18- 27, 2014, with educational workshops October 20-24 and the music festival on October 25, 2014.
The total project cost including travel, accommodation, merchandising, video/photo documentation, studio recording, CD production, and venue rental is over $30,000. Each country has held local fundraisers in their respective countries to support costs for accommodation, transport and other travel expenses.
We are looking to the Kick Starter community to raise ONLY $5000 to help produce the festival.
These funds will be used:
— for venue, sound system and lighting rental
— to design and produce t-shirts to distribute to fans and participants
— to record and produce a compilation album
