A monthly evening of poetry, visual art and conversation which aims to develop new audiences for both venue and artists
Triple C represents a new era of Ugandan Culture offering a space for the general public and artists to meet, interact, and discuss their work. There is also the added value of experiencing Ugandan coffee from different regions. Following on the legacy of events such as ‘meet the artist’ at the National Theatre, Triple C is an evening of poets (2) reading extensively from their work and Visual Artists (1) exhibiting their work in a non traditional environment. The evening will be curated and MC’d by Ife Piankhi one of Kampala’s finest performers and creative facilitators.

Shedule for the evening:

Meet and Greet: Based on the speed dating concept, the audience will be encouraged to have conversations with different people on a topic for a limited time. Just like Facebook people will get the opportunity to interact and share ideas/opinions but face to face!
Readings from 3 Poets: Unlike Poetry in Session and Kwivuga, poets will have the opportunity to recite extensively from their work, explain the content and take questions. Both English and Indigenious languages will be read and encouraged.

Exhibitions: Ugandan artists will be invited to exhibit pieces of their work and during the break interact with the audience as a means of promoting Ugandan art and the development of an ‘art buying’ culture alongside Ugandans very successful craft market.
Partners: Over the last 4 years Ife Piankhi has strategically positioned herself within the Creative Community in Kampala as a performer, creative facilitator and organiser. She will call on the support of organisations such as; 32 Degrees East, In Movement-Art for Social Change, Poetry in Session, BN Poetry Award, Laba Art Festival, Writing our World, Makerere University, Goethe Centrum, Alliance Francaise, Femrite, Bonfire, Kinetic Entertainment, Lantern Meet of Poets, Luminous Sorrels in order to put on an event which is well advertised, interesting and diverse in its content.
