Co-Creating Kampala’s Creative Industry – A Day of Learning @ Design Hub Kampala
Jul 28 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Co-Creating Kampala's Creative Industry - A Day of Learning @ Design Hub Kampala | Kampala | Central Region | Uganda

What do you feel we need to learn in order to make the world a better place? This question was put to people across the world, people like you. But to avoid getting stuck in big talk with very little practical output, participants were invited to look within themselves and to find things they would like to express and share: lessons learned through experience and personal interests, not via books or lectures.

Gloria Kiconco is one of the hundred selected people to facilitate a Day of Learning which will take place at the Design Hub Kampala.
Topic of learning is: Co-Creating Kampala’s Creative Industry.

Participation to the day is on invitation and places are limited. Write us or Gloria at kiconco.gloria@gmail.com if you have a specific interest to attend! The exhibition and presentation of the outcomes is open to the public and will take place during the Friday Social Drinks at the Design Hub from 4pm – 6pm.
