Our Services


We offer consultancies on Creative Arts, Gender, Development, Community and Education. We have a passion for works that involve advocacy, empowerment, Civic Education, and Public Participation on Socio-political and economic issues. This involves but is not limited to Strategic Plan Development, Gender Mainstreaming and Community Advocacy. We believe through combining research and the creative arts, the community gets more empowered in an amicable environment, thus creating a deeper lasting and positive impact.


Legacy Arts and Film Lab founded the Lake International PanAfrican Film Festival(LIPFF) in 2016, due to the gap in Festivals for Films in African Languages. We believe that African stories need to be told in African Languages as authentic as can be. The Festival has various activities from film screenings, workshops, panel discussions, Open forums, local tourism and the Gala Awards Ceremony.
