In 2017, 23 women in Wakiso district were infamously raped and murdered. What happened to them? Why aren’t their cases resolved?
Voicing Entebbe is an act of art and activism initiated by interdisciplinary artist, Christine Ayo. The project started as an archive dedicated to documenting these unresolved tragedies. It has since grown into a collaborative project cutting across communities in Entebbe, Kampala and the Netherlands.

25: A site specific installation made of 25 unique pre owned photo frames, formerly worn hair extensions. and tie wraps. I used this concept of memory and loss in reference to the stories of the women that are unknown to us but still important to the households in which they belong.
