Impacts of the Forum

Each month, over 275 participants take advantage of the free programs offered by the Forum. Professional artists work with staff and participants to provide workshops such as arts and crafts, adult and kids' pottery, and puppet-making, as well as photography and field trips to cultural institutions around Kabale Municipality. Snacks are also offered to participants, some of whom may not have eaten previously that day.

Participants have learned new skills and have had the chance to experience something new and different.
The Forum emphasizes that there are both tangible and intangible benefits to individual participants and the community. Adult and youth participants learn new skills and techniques, are exposed to different artists and are offered snacks to help fuel their bodies during this program. Additionally, increased self-esteem, ownership of their ideas, and recognition of their own potential are observed in the behavior of the participants.

At the Forum grassroots history is evident in the way that it is embedded in the neighborhood, and committed to community events and development. Previous Forum projects that affect the wider community include its Burungi Bwansi projects which help to beautify the neighborhood and the Municipality. Annual events such as a Community Parade and Community local giving re eagerly anticipated every year by both the participants who help to prepare these events and the wider community that attends.

The Forum is also involved with other local organizations such as the Kabale Culture Centre and Kabale Municipality Development Forum to identify community needs and deliver a coordinated approach to programming and community development. These kinds of long-term partnerships between arts and other community organizations help to ensure that residents' needs are met, local initiatives are encouraged, and that the vision of overall community development is shared among the organizations.

By starting small, addressing local needs, and remaining embedded in the community, this grassroots approach to community arts and community development has helped the Forum become an integral part of the KMDF.
