Welcome to the opening of the exhibition where you will see moments of life, joy, labor and the future through Shami’s eyes and talent.
“When you hear AFRICA – Shami speaks – Probably immediately comes into your mind: war, anger, hunger, forest, poverty, corruption and many other identities trying to describe the world, but that’s not the whole story. where I come from and what I experience for my land are many different things I do not see why our current financial situation is the reason we do not want to know better – through my work, through the compositions you will see to show you the beauty and the reality of our living culture, which I know and embrace in the tempo so the “Pearl of Africa – Uganda”, which is part of the “Art and culture of unity” and thanks to “Open Space” Foundation for the hospitality and the opportunity to represent my country and my people. “
