Visual artists urged to promote African ideas and values

Ambassador Ismail Ayobami Alatise addressing the media at the Nigerian High Commission

The High Commissioner of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in Uganda, Ismail Ayobami Alatise, has called upon visual artists in the east African nation to use their skills to promote and preserve African Culture.
This comes at a time Uganda is waiting on President Museveni’s decision on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill, 2023.

“They are very free to come up with ideas of the values they want the society to preserve. I am sure the artists have been doing that from the time memorial and this will continue. The social problems we have are many in both our countries and both in the world as a whole and the artists will continue to play their role depending on where they sit,” he said.

He made the remarks during the unveiling ceremony of the judges for the forthcoming “My Impression” visual art competition that will happen on March 30, at the UNCC Nommo Gallery.
