The pilot project originally titled Speak your Mind, was carried out in Nakivale refugee settlement. Ugandan artists supported by Swedish poets facilitated training workshops in spoken word and dance. The facilitators were experienced artists sharing their expertise with the refugee youths with the aim of skilling up their artistic competencies, particularly in terms of performance capabilities. The pilot was also aimed at developing artistic channels through which refugees can access creative platforms where they showcase, share their stories, interact with members of their host community and build networks to help them further improve their appreciation of human rights, democracy, and gender equality.
The pilot received financial support from the Swedish Institute with additional support from Regina theatre, Uppsala and the Finish Refugee Committee.
