The KAB18 Art Education Programme will focus on critical art writing. In order to develop a vibrant art industry, there must be Artists, Galleries, Art Critics, Art Collectors and Museums.

Developing critical writing about art helps us understand art as a medium of communication. We believe that the younger generation, if nurtured and guided, will become tomorrow’s art critics and writers.

The education programme will take the form of a workshop which will be an introduction to art writing and will use as material the Kampala Biennale, with its exhibitions, artists, and guests from the cultural sector.

The participants will write pieces about the artworks at the Biennale. The main objective of this programme is to learn how to observe works of art, to question how they are elaborated, to interview artists and to place the works in an artistic movement. But it is also to learn how to place oneself as spectator; sensible and capable of critique.

The programme will be conducted by Mr. En Liang Khong, arts writer and cellist. En Liang Khong is assistant digital editor at frieze, a leading arts magazine. His writing on politics and art has been published in Prospect, Financial Times, Times Literary Supplement, Los Angeles Review of Books, The New Statesman, The Daily Telegraph and The New Inquiry.

The workshop will take place in Kampala from 22nd -25th August 2018.
Limited spaces are available.  To apply: http://kampalabiennale.org/call-for-participants-critical-art-writing-workshop/

What do you feel we need to learn in order to make the world a better place? This question was put to people across the world, people like you. But to avoid getting stuck in big talk with very little practical output, participants were invited to look within themselves and to find things they would like to express and share: lessons learned through experience and personal interests, not via books or lectures.

Gloria Kiconco is one of the hundred selected people to facilitate a Day of Learning which will take place at the Design Hub Kampala. 
Topic of learning is: Co-Creating Kampala’s Creative Industry. 

Participation to the day is on invitation and places are limited. Write us or Gloria at kiconco.gloria@gmail.com if you have a specific interest to attend! The exhibition and presentation of the outcomes is open to the public and will take place during the Friday Social Drinks at the Design Hub from 4pm – 6pm.
