Poetry Poster Project Workshops

As part of the Poetry Poster Project, workshops were carried out in secondary schools. More than 50 schools across Uganda participated in the first poetry poster project workshops. The contributing writers to the poetry anthology facilitated the poetry writing workshops. The project’s objectives were to produce poetry books for school students and promote reading and writing poetry. The first book published under this project was titled Painted Voices (2008) and was launched by the director of the National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC), Connie Kateeba, at Afriart Gallery in March 2008. The project was replicated to produce Painted Voices Vol. II (2009). This was launched by the German ambassador to Uganda in March 2009.
