Our Mission

32° East is a home for creation, experimentation and critical thinking through contemporary art. Since 2011, we've expanded possibilities for art making in Uganda through our residencies, resource centre and public programming. In April, we break ground on phase 1 of the very first purpose-built contemporary art centre in Kampala, Uganda. 

Phase 1

Through support from incredible donors and pro-bono architectural services from New Makers Bureau we have raised $325,000 for phase 1 which will consist of 3 artists’ studios, a library, and a café. But this is just the beginning! 

Phase 2 - The Final Phase

We have ambitions for a centre that is financially resilient, that gives artists access to more opportunities to thrive, and introduces new audiences to transformative art. Phase 2 will include 3 artists’ studios for lease, workshop space, a gallery, accommodation, and art shops.

Thank you for joining us on this journey, we can't wait to celebrate bringing this to life with you!

The new 32° East :


  • Six artists’ studios 
  • A well resourced learning centre and library 
  • A purpose-built public art gallery
  • Accommodation for visiting artists
  • Café and art shop

Check out our website for more details! Through these expanded resources, 32° East will provide fertile conditions for art makers, and expose audiences to entirely new possibilities concerning art, architecture and sustainability.


All contributors will be invited to our grand opening. We also will share regular updates on the building's progress. This is a celebration with each and every one of you, so throughout the campaign we have also partnered with members of our community to share very exciting surprise rewards with you including the chance to win an Ian Mwesiga print!

No matter how much money we raise, 100% of the proceeds will be put towards construction of the new centre, and every contribution brings us closer to completing the first purpose built art centre in Uganda!
