We are very happy and excited Uganda community Art skills Development and Recycling(UCASDR) to host  first ever Apexart internationally fellowship kampala Uganda in December 29th2017 to  January 27th 2018.
Eric Krancevic is currently visiting Kampala from New York, where he is immersed in a program of visits and meetings to learn about Ugandan culture and society.

Eric Krancevic is the first fellow Visiting from New York City to kampala-uganda.
  The apexart Fellowship program  is an unusual opportunity for artist Fellows to travel to an unfamiliar location and receive a 30-day schedule of non-art activities and meetings. The goal of this is to introduce Fellows to new ideas and sources of inspiration that might have an effect on their work. The meetings arranged for this program are not promotional in any way. Instead, they allow for Apexart Fellows to get an inside look and first-hand information about organizations, initiatives, and people throughout the city. You may read more about Eric on his fellowship page:https://apexart.org/fellowship/krancevic.php
Thanks to all our partners during the Apexart international program #US Embassy Kampala#jinja municipality#sanyu babies home#Makerere university#kataremwa chishare#
