32° East in partnership with University of Cambridge, Infectious Diseases Institute and School of Fine Art, Makerere University invites Ugandan visual artists to respond to the theme of ‘Pictures of Ageing’. How are older people seen by society? How do older people see themselves? What does healthy ageing look like to older people in Uganda?
The residency is open to emerging and mid-career artists that exhibit great potential and commitment to their artistic practice. A key component of the residency is working with a group of older people to help them develop an artistic project of their own. Artists must be willing to travel to Wakiso District once a week and must be available for key meetings with other grant stakeholders.
Accepted media: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, mixed-media and new media.
