AFRORETRO present THE SCHOOL of UGANGLISH 

Our October 2014 residency part of Yinka Shonibare MBE's Guest Projects Africa

"Showcasing cutting edge African Art Forms, Guest Projects Africa creates a platform for African artists of all disciplines. The month long residency offers an alternative universe and playground for artists. It is a laboratory of ideas, a testing ground for new thoughts and action

We grew up with sweet potato topping our cottage pie and fried cassava accompanying our battered cod. We are a product of the mash-up of two strong cultural influences nurtured and natured. At The AFRORETRO School of Uganglish we will explore our cultural mash-up, give you an exclusive invitation to dip your toes into our version of Ugandan-ness and invite you to share your own cultural mash-ups. Everyone and their complex cultural make-up is welcome.

Come and share your own journey, or that of your ancestors or drop it altogether and see if another culture fits better!

We at AFRORETRO have commissioned 1 Lebanese, 2 Ugandan, 3 British creatives and our Mum to experience their discipline through different eyes, ears, hands, tongues and noses. We are working to recreate the cultural clashes and partnerships that we have experienced in our own personal journey and see how they manifest and inspire in others.  The School of Uganglish will explore what it is to be part of the 1st generation Ugandan Diaspora living in England.
