AfA’s Learning Objectives: • Uganda Team to design a comprehensive report that will be ongoing and constantly reflect the issues “on the ground. We will collect data from the Gulu and Tororo Communities to gather the benefits and the challenges of doing our arts based programmes. Theresa to assist the Ugandan Team. • This is the perfect time for our Consultants to raise attention and/or funds for similar Ugandan programmes to keep going after this summer project concludes. • We can demonstrate “can do” and cultivate empowerment attitude through arts experience with our communities. • Uganda Team to meet with local universities, companies and organisations who may be interested in sponsoring us. • Melissa in the US, Evonne and the Hatfields in the UK to select other schools to participate in an AfA Community Book and exchange project. • Gaining information from Gulu communities for potential project with The New School University in NYC. Gemma, Melissa, Hope and Laura Stephens to assist the Ugandan Team.


AfA’s Deliverables: • Instruction for community members, children and leaders • Assess arts educations needs and opportunities • Comprehensive report • Selecting partner organisation in Tororo like CDO is in Gulu • Localised arts exhibitions and performances • Structure for locating/engaging local community leaders – outlining commitments – to keep project alive • Recommendations on sustainability – funding requirements for AfA in future

Organisations to Meet and Follow up with: • Michellangelo School of Fine Arts and Design • Nkumba University School of Fine Arts • Makerere School of Industrial and Fine Arts • Uganda Museum • Hotels that have gift shops as well as established galleries-- in order to sell and promote AfA artwork • Ugandan based organisations, foundations and companies-- in order to meet with them and ask for their sponsorship

Topics for AfA to Focus on: • Understanding and fostering mental/physical health connections and educational benefits through our programs and workshops. • Reducing existing stigma, prejudice and focusing on positive aspects of culture and personal/ community identity. • Addressing long-term psychological needs in poverty situations and in the aftermath of trauma.

Type of Information to Gather for AfA Report: • Develop a questionnaire for community members and children with questions that are specific to what we're targeting in Gulu and Tororo. • Important to gather as much data as possible: head-counts, obvious areas of concern, gaping holes or niches of where the large NGOs or local organizations aren't able to provide services and where we can fill in. • We really need to narrow in and focus on key groups. It may be that we can serve more than we anticipated, but for funding we've got to be able to show them specifics. • Take lots of pictures • Get organisational contacts.


• •

Collect individual stories from specific children, teachers and community members. Get their background information, their aspirations and what they see their roles as being. Create and develop a plan for what is next. There needs to be clear, identifiable goals set that the community members can reach with measurable targets.

Gulu Programme: Objectives of visit 1. Continue with the Community Book Project already going in Gulu. •

Meet with members of the community book committee (parents, teachers and children) and CDO, review with them their activities and plans in as far as the community book project is concerned. Facilitate the group to understand the topic of the next community book and generate ideas to form the book to be sent.

2. Conduct an in-depth research project by Justin with Theresa’s assistance. 3. Purchase selected artwork from community members (5-10 of the very best). 4. Develop, oversee and take part in the music and dance workshops by the performing artists.
