Art is the expression of the soul. When day-to-day existence is a fight for survival, time and space for creation is reduced or disappears. This work is a claim for the universal right to enjoy the arts, even for the young inhabitants in the slums of Kampala, Uganda.

Music, dance, the circus, graffiti, photography…are tools for social change. Well-orchestrated instruments which produce self-esteem and confidence in these adolescents with scarce economic resources. Art inspires, stimulates and satisfies. Education of the imagination, a strong beginning for building a better society.

These jumps are of their energy, their claim and their strength. They symbolize transformation, transcendence and longing for a loftier present.
