Exhibitions portray complex social issues through a personal and intimate lens, educating and inspiring audiences to generate resources for the community development projects. Our multi-media exhibitions bring life in Uganda closer to home through a more hands-on interactive experience, including photography, documentary film, Ugandan music, audio slideshows, embroidered fabric panels, HIV/AIDS quilts, interviews with community leaders on complex social issues, and more.
While fundraising is one goal of our exhibitions, the primary goal is always to educate. While suffering is present in Uganda, it does not define life there. Our exhibitions portray the strengths and resiliency within the community, as well as the hardships.
Once funding for development projects has been achieved, Project FOCUS is committed to returning the artwork created by Ugandans back to the specific artists (if applicable) or to the Lyantonde community. Once exhibitions have ceased in the US, we plan to exhibit the work in Uganda. Our goal is to have additional art pieces created by U.S. artists in response to their personal experience with the exhibit.
