Youth Programmes


ArtRwanda – Ubuhanzi, a nationwide talent search project was launched on 24 August 2018, with the aim of identifying and supporting young and talented Rwandans within the creative arts industry.

It consists of a televised search for creative youth in six different categories (plastic arts, music & dance, fashion, acting & drama, photography & cinematography and literature).

ArtRwanda–Ubuhanzi is being implemented by Imbuto Foundation, in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth, the Ministry of Sports and Culture and the Rwanda Academy of Language and Culture.

Through this project:

• 2400 youth from across the country showcased their talents during auditions,
• 70 most talented youth were selected as finalist and eligible to benefit from the incubation phase,
• 6 best artists, from each category, were awarded RWF 1 million each and wining group business projects were each awarded seed capital of RWF 10 million.
