We at 32° East believe in artists in Uganda, that their talent can be nurtured in community, and that their art can have both intrinsic and extrinsic worth. We believe that a home-grown collecting culture can be cultivated and that we have the potential to develop our own audiences and markets.


With a new art centre, we aim to generate consistent income, set down roots, and create a home that will last. We envision a centre that sustains itself, through studio rentals, art sales, workshops, and accommodation. With pro-bono support from Periscope Studio, we have a gorgeous design just waiting to be realised. We want to open a new centre built by the artists for the artists, but we cannot do it without your help!

 

Library 

We are so proud of the collection of books and resources in our library, and more importantly, how much it has been valued by our artists. Our library is housed in a container generously donated by Bolloré, and we would need $2,000 to transport the container to our land.

  • Quarterly Newsletter
  • Annual Report
  • Acknowledgement on our website
  • Private exhibition viewings
  • Discounted prints
  • Lifetime Membership including access to the library
