The Project

#RhymesOnline was a poetry production of @kqhubafrica in Collaboration with the poetry collective Kitara Nation with support from @africalia.belgium & @bayimba_ug Foundation. The project highlighted social issues using poetry during the Covid-19 pandemic

The challenge

When the world couldn’t gather much as a result of the pandemic, we resorted to Using Poetry film, documenting four of Uganda’s emerging, influential and future poets, MC’s, who reflected on the issues of the times. For us this project was the opportunity to create a space amidst a glaring pandemic to allow poetry thrive.
