Created under the impetus of the non-profit association ABASAMANDARI, an association founded in 2018 by a group of 8 students from the performing arts sector at the University of Burundi, UNIMA Burundi is currently in a phase research and discovery of the arts of puppetry. It aims to to promote and popularize the arts of puppetry in Burundi, the art which seems to be largely ignored and neglected in the Republic of Burundi.
Despite a lack of financial means, UNIMA Burundi’s main activities to carry out in its missions and visions are: training and creations to be able to promote and popularize the arts of puppetry in Burundi.
UNIMA Burundi has already benefited from training carried out by UNIMA International and supported by UNESCO, project: Puppetry of tomorrow in Africa, Dramaturgies and digital experiments in May 2023, training which responded well to the missions and visions of the ‘UNIMA (promotion and popularization of puppetry arts in Burundi, and even in the Great Lakes Region).
