Ubizo Theatre presents the Ubizo Arts Festival 2013 during the September school holidays.

Ubizo Theatre is a non-profit organization (NPO-105-728) that was found in 2009 with the aim of seeking opportunities, information and exposure for artists to create an artistic space for upcoming artists.

Ubizo Arts Festival is a developmental festival that is not focusing on perfectionism but aims at creating perfectionists. Ubizo Arts Festival has two components to it which is training workshop and performance platform.

The festival provides training workshops in puppetry, drama, music, dance and poetry and showcases their work on the main festival. The idea is to inspire other artists to believe that captivating arts can come from challenging places.

The 2013 Ubizo Arts Festival will feature 2 school puppetry productions, 6 school choirs, 6 local choirs, 10 drama productions, 10 dance productions, fashion and photography.
