Our Uganda Friday: A Culturally Packed Weekend of FUN!!!

by Kate von Achen

This weekend has so much amazingness happening in Kampala we can't even believe it! And it's all FREE ENTRY! Looks like sleep is out of the question!

Tonight at Afriart Gallery Jjuuko Hoods, one of my faves, will be opening his new exhibition with recent paintings, sculptures and furniture with opening cocktail from 6pm until 9pm.

Tomorrow, Edison Mugalu, impressively self-taught artist specializing in impressionist depictions of urban street scenes and Zanzibari fishing villages, to name a few, will be opening his exhibition of new works at AKA Gallery (formerly Tulifanya Gallery) from 10am.

Also tomorrow, don't miss the Ethical Valentine's Sale featuring Awava, Waswad, Nabukenya Helen, Kikapu by Furaha B. and Afriart Gallery from 1pm at Lotus Mexicana Cantina and Beach Bar, with special performances by Arte do Brazil and their amazing Capoeira dance, as well as Galaxy Dance Project's breakdancers! Also in store, a 5k taco bar AND free cocktails with purchase of main entree!

And finally, Sunday! Enjoy a nice, relaxing Wineart Lunch at Cafe Kawa & Wine Garage in Muyenga.

WINEART - sensorial and aesthetic experience: TASTE ART THROUGH WINE AND FOOD

The aim of WINEART lunch is to guide the audience along an artistic route, where you can taste twists and connections between Art, Wine and Food.

Arts, in all its forms, will be the protagonist of the event. The attendees will perceive the artistic content through their eyes and taste buds, exploring the synergy between gastronomical and enological features.

Come and find the connection between the painitng exhibited and three different wines enjoying a tempting selection of three different menu, and choosing your testing and aesthetic route...

Music and sounds from Chris Johnson will create the perfect background and atmosphere...
