Welcome to the online programme of the Kampala Art Biennale 2020.
We will kick start this year’s online event with a series of recorded dialogues, online studio visits and ‘behind the scenes’ features.
With this programme and timeline, we present you with three weeks of content leading up to the opening of the actual virtual exhibition space to the public.
You will be able to follow all the content online on all KAB20 platforms, i.e Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and by email when you subscribe to weekly newsletter. Our socials will be updated every day leading up to the public opening of the virtual exhibition.

We will take the public through an online”behind the scenes” tour of the digital studio design work that has gone into the creation of the virtual space (which has surely been hard labor). We will follow Tribe Uganda based at the Studios at MoTIV as they take us through their processes of collaborating with artists, producers, and a curator to create the virtual experience that is KAB20.
Meet the UX/UI Specialist, back-end developer, gamification expert, animators, interior world creators and texturizors as they take over our socials!
