The Imara Girl’s Festival 2023 was a resounding success as it took place at the Kati Kati Restaurant in Lugogo a few days ago with the extraordinary all-girls event providing a platform for women to showcase their artistic and craft innovations.
Under the theme “Interrogating the diversity of spaces for women in politics, economics, arts, and business,” attendees were treated to a thought-provoking exploration of various facets of women’s roles in society.
Being an all-female show, the musical bit was left for Naava Grey, Lillian Mbabazi, Karole Kasita, Sandra Suubi, Spice Diana, Irene Ntale, and Martha Mukisa who all delivered captivating performances.
They kept the audience on their feet, cheering and singing along to some of their biggest hits. Every artiste who climbed that stage was welcomed warmly to the stage and by the time they left, they felt real love from the crowd. They each performed not more than five songs on that busy evening.
Among the guests, attendees included Miss Uganda 2023, Hannah Karema Tumukende, and other regional beauty queens who had competed alongside her in the Miss Uganda 2023 competition.
Solome Nakaweesi, a Pan-African Feminist Activist and Chairperson at FOWODE engaged with the young girls, emphasizing that the festival offered a platform for unity, connection with role models, the articulation of ideas, and invaluable guidance for navigating the world as women.
The primary objective of this event was to amplify the voices of young girls across the country, connecting them with their role models and fostering interactive sessions.
