Faye Kabali-Kagwa

Faye Kabali-Kagwa is a Ugandan-South African arts coordinator, cultural curator, and arts writer. Faye builds interventions that go beyond artistic output and are interested in audience as engaged contributors to her work.

She is a fellow of the VANSA Cultural Leadership Programme 2021, the Pan African Creative Exchange (PACE) Dramaturgy Lab 2021, and the Salzburg Global Seminar Cultural Innovators Forum 2019. In 2021 she was recognised as one of the Mail & Guardians Top 200 Young South Africans for the year.

Faye facilitates opportunities for children and young people to access theatre and the arts in her arts coordination work with ASSITEJ South Africa. She was also the coordinator and curator of the Open Book Poetry Slam in 2019.

Faye is a trusted cultural observer and critic with several articles being published in the Mail & Guardian, New Frame, Culture Review, and Business Arts South Africa.
