In 2017, 23 women in Entebbe were infamously raped and murdered. What happened to them? When does Justice come?
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 unsolved tragedies. Ayo together with poet, Ife Piankhi and Daisy Aloyo ( Entebbe Division B Speaker) spent time with women in Entebbe, using art and poetry to encourage dialogue around women's safety and feminist issues. These workshops and relationships have contributed to the development of Voicing Entebbe installation which to be showcased at KLA ART 18, geared towards addressing gender based violence in Uganda. During KLA ART, this installation will travel along the Kampala- Entebbe road to several locations in Entebbe on the afternoon of the 26th.
