Hilda Twongyeire, Exececutive Director of FEMRITE signing the MOU on behalf of the literary artists.

NTV has entered into a partnership with local visual and literal artists to showcase and promote their works to a wider audience. NTV signed a memorandum of understanding with the artists on Friday beginning an arrangement that will deliver to the country, and the world, talented Ugandans with excellent artistic skills.

To start with, NTV and the artists’ associations will over the next two weeks embark on a graffiti challenge that is expected to attract hundreds of artists from across the country. The winner of the graffiti challenge will be sponsored to be part of an art residency programme in Turkey.

Turkish ambassador to Uganda Sedef Yavuzalp, a painter herself, encouraged Ugandan artists to use media space to gain universal recognition.
