Toonda Cultural Community Center

The Cultural Community Centre Toonda (from Swahili „to create“) offers local people the opportunity to meet, to try out, to exchange art and culture in the rural environment of Western Uganda. It is a place for an open exchange of ideas, for creative processes and cooperation between people of different cultures.

The Center

One hectare of land in Kyakataama, about 45 minutes from Fort Portal at the crater lakes is the home of Toonda with a theatre, social rooms and activities. It is also home to diverse projects such as the schoolproject SMART KYAKATAAMA and CMBL The Contemporary Music @ Bush Lab. We proudly collaborate with the SYLT FOUNDATION.
