Event Details

NSG Theme 2015 " THIS IS UGANDA"

The National Street Gallery will launch its permanent base at Uganda National Theatre outdoor space where visual artists from across the global will work together with local Ugandan painters and installation artists to create the first real Street Art space in Uganda.
Based on a yearly theme, inspired by the people and society, the artists will create large art pieces together which will then be exhibited for free viewing on our installed canvas walls for a full year. After a year the art works shall be painted over with works inspired by a new theme.
On our National Street Gallery event we shall have a red carpet reception for our donors and partners to auction art pieces, these will be works from the participating guest artists and this section is by invite only.
