COLLIN SEKAJUGO AT JIWAR
Within the framework of the agreement with Africa Centre (South Africa), and this year with the support from The African Arts Trust (Kenia), Jiwar collaborates since three years in the AIR project in which 8 creators are selected from around 400 artist candidatures of every discipline who live and work in any country of Africa.
COLLIN SEKAJUGO (Uganda-Rwanda) is a committed visual artist who cannot understand creation without the relationship with the community. Responding to his concern of connection with the society, Collin has created in few years two reference spaces at Great Lakes Africa (Rwanda and Uganda). The centre IVUKA ARTS, at Kigali (Rwanda) works since 6 years ago to build a community which through arts lets obtain to the young artists the needed competences, structure and visibility in order to become the cultural agents of tomorrow.

WEAVER BIRD, situated at Masaka city outskirts (Uganda) has been the first art and communitary tourism centre of the region, seting itself up as a bridge between the artístic creation and the community.
