32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust is an independent, non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors and supported by strategic advisors.

“[In Uganda] there is cosmetic prosperity, but when you look closer there is no foundation, no building blocks or infrastructure for the arts to grow.
– Eria “Sane” Nsubuga, Artist in Residence 2013

In response we are building the first non-profit contemporary art centre in Kampala. With 6 artists’ studios, a well-resourced learning centre and library, a purpose-built gallery, accommodation, hidden gardens, a cafe and shops – the new 32° East will be a hub to inspire future generations of artists and creators. We have built 4 studios and our library so far, support Phase 2 and help us complete our vision! You can make a monthly contribution or one time donation by clicking the Donate button below
