Kampala Art Biennale (Uganda, August 2014)

Kampala art biennale is a showcase of contemporary art from Africa with the goal to expose, educate and create debate about the value of art in society. It was established to recognize, and integrate African contemporary art that is being created on the peripherals of mainstream information avenues.
Kampala art biennale was established by Kampala Arts Trust www.kampalaartstrust.org, a collective of visual and performance art practitioners living and working in public and private spaces within the precinct of Kampala city. It was born out of the need for inclusion faced by artists working on the African continent trying to reach the global art scene. Kampala art biennale is afro-centric in nature in that it seeks to promote only artists (foreign or native) working on the African continent by creating a vibrant and visible platform.
