Voices: reflections on art and culture in Uganda presents a wide-ranging and well-informed picture of the arts and culture of Uganda. This is a compilation of the thoughts and voices of role-players who have themselves participated in, and contributed to, the growth and development of the arts and culture sector. Explorative in nature, and drawn from interviews with 52 prominent cultural practitioners, it is a reflection on what has happened and what is happening in Uganda, and why. It provides first-hand insight into music, film, theatre, dance, visual art, comedy, creative writing, poetry, arts journalism, publishing, animation, fashion, visual arts, crafts, heritage, cultural rights, culture and development, governance, youth, festivals, tertiary education, government, and women’s empowerment, and much more. Highlighting both challenges and achievements, this book is a useful tool to frame the incredible explosion of creativity taking place in this country.
Compiled and edited by Peter Rorvik (former Arterial Network Secretary General), the book is published by the Mimeta Centre for Cultural Sector Development of Norway. See www.mimeta.org/new-page for more about the publication and a diverse selection of comments from interviewees.
Bayimba Cultural Foundation is managing sales and distribution. The book is being sold at $10 or 30,000 UGX.
