Hamwe Festival 2021: Short Stories Contest

The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) and Kigali Public Library (KPL) will jointly organize a short stories contest as part of the third edition of Hamwe Festival. UGHE is an accredited university in Rwanda and an initiative of PIH (Partners In Health) that trains the next generation of global leaders from around the world in health care delivery.

With the Hamwe Festival, the university’s objectives are to create an enabling environment for strong collaboration between global health professionals and creative industries as well as to generate new insights into global health challenges and corresponding solutions, using the unique and complementary vantage points of artists and global health professionals.

The first edition of the festival, Hamwe 2019, explored a diverse range of possible collaborations between creative industries and health sectors. The second edition of the festival took place online from November 11th to November 15th, 2020, and discussed Mental Health and Social Justice through the prism of the arts and art-based research, reaching more than 26,000 viewers from all over the world.
