The Short Century: A Course on Eastern African Modernism – Funded by Ignite Culture EA

We, the Makerere Consortium in partnership with Alle School of Fine Arts, University of Dar Es Salaam, USIU, EAMAN and Belva Digital, are excited to share that we were announced as a beneficiary in the second cohort of @Ignite_CultureEA.

The course “The Short Century – Filling the Gap in Understanding and Appreciation of Eastern African Modernism” will concentrate on the modernist heritage of Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda and is meant to be the first installment in a series of art courses exploring modernist production of all of Eastern Africa (22 countries using the UN definition).

The project is supported by a grant from Ignite Culture: ACP-EU Culture Programme (Eastern Africa). This fund is being implemented by HEVA, in partnership with the British Council Kenya with the financial contribution of the European Union, and with further support from the Organisation of ACP (African, Caribbean and Pacific) States (OACPS).
