I was delighted to receive my invitations from both the Director (Tamer Dekel) Inspiration Arts for humanities and the Dean school of Industrial and Fine Arts- Makerere University.The conference was to stimulate new creative, how to tackle Issues, deliver options for new collaborations, establishing net work with organizations committed to deliver positive social change using Art as a tool.
Inspiration arts for humanity is built on a foundation of artistic Excellency, social activism and community engagement while Uganda community Art skill development and recycling (UCASDR) ) is a program that links Art and Craft to environmental concerns through recycling skills development and innovation in Uganda. It also uses Art and Craft to address health issues and also entrepreneurial skills development to the local communities .
Inspiration vision is to cultivate art as a catalyst for effective social change, its mission is to instill Artists with tools needed to translate their talent into measurable impact to the world most pressing social challenges ,by establishing inspiration Arts for humanities global school an international academy they will be training Artists to be activists and social entrepreneurial that will lead a positive change with Art.while UCASDR vision is to develop and build regional skills development and Innovation centers that will provide basic skills to unprivileged people in the community. UCASDR was registered in 2012 to provide basic practical skills for Entrepreneurship and works on a voluntary basis using Art and design as tools for social change, also working as a mobile Vocational program in order to provide equal opportunities to other communities away from its base providing skills for social change.
The UCASDR program major goal is to promote Innovation/ Creative skills, Environmental Sustainability, Rehabilitation and Therapy within Communities in Uganda.
