Our Uganda Friday: An event for ever day of your weekend.

by Darlyne Komukama

Let's start with Friday.

Dr. George Kyeyune is a senior lecturer at Makerere University, a part of the Drawing and Sculpture staff whose speciality is in Sculpture and Art History. He has had many accomplishments, among them; he resuscitated the Visual Arts Journal after 45 years, introduced a new Masters in Critical Thinking & Aesthetic Theories and led a team that erected the 14 feet glass fibre statue at Kabamba Military Barracks.

His art exhibition of paintings opens today at the Afriart Gallery on Kenneth Dale Drive off of Kiira Road. Dr. Kyeyune's exhibition, 'The Kampala I Will Always Come Back To' explores the changes his city has gone through in the time he has lived in her, taking into special account the new changes being made by the Kampala City Council Authority. The show starts at 6.00pm and ends at 9.00pm.

Now on to Saturday.

WHAT:    In Movement Student Performance!
WHERE:  National Theatre
WHEN:   Saturday 15th  October, 2011 at 5:00PM
WHY:     Support In Movement’s students and programs!

The performance will feature In Movement's Year 3 students in a musical play entitled “Who Am I?”  The show will include a visual arts exhibition, as well as music, dance, drama, and circus arts.  Entrance to the show is free!  In Movement t-shirts will be on sale for 25,000 UGX, and consider supporting In Movement with a cash donation, or fill out a pledge card!

And finally, Sunday.

We have already told you about Daudi Karungi's book and now you can see the photo exhibition of the pictures in the book at a show being held at the Uganda Museum starting at 10:00am and ending at 6:00pm. The author will be on hand to sign any copies you buy. We believe this book would make the perfect Christmas present for the women in your life, so bring them along and enjoy the exhibition.

And with that, we wish you a lovely weekend.
