32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust is an independent, non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees 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
