In its quest to strengthen the programming impact of non-state actors, PPI has curated the #ArtSpeaks2019 Initiative to increase the diversity of policy and political engagement approaches available to civil society actors. Working alongside The #ArtSpeaks Network constituted of young and emerging industrial, fine and performing artists, PPI through this programme is keen to use their talents to promote citizens voice and agency for social justice causes.
Young people represent a commanding majority in Uganda: According to the 2016/2017 Uganda National Household Survey (UNHS), more than 70 per cent of the population is under 30 years.

The roundtable is convened to discuss the context and factors impacting on civil society influence on politics and public policy reforms in Uganda and the entry points that can be leveraged to strengthen this influence.
