Nyege Nyege’s Kampire and Darlyne announce fundraiser for new arts centre in Kampala

The pair’s efforts form part of a wider campaign helmed by 32° East, a local non-profit organisation.

Nyege Nyege core members Kampire and Darlyne (who also DJs and produces as Decay and Cardi Monáe) are raising funds for a new purpose-built arts hub in Kampala, Uganda. The pair will be DJing “in real life” at local spot Wild Coffee Bar on 2 April. The sets will also be available to watch online via Twitch. We’re told to expect “a fun b2b some surprise guests, a salooni merch drop all for a good cause.”

Last week, 32° East, a Kampala-based non-profit organisation, launched its #32BreaksGround fundraising campaign. The organisation aim to raise $200,000 to support and build a new contemporary arts centre. The space will house an art gallery, workshop areas, artist studios, a cafe, shops and a learning centre. Plus, a library with free wi-fi and computer access, as well as an editing suite for digital artists, filmmakers and sound designers. The hub will also include accommodation for visiting artists, “to improve our facilities for artists and reduce costs.”

“Through these expanded resources,” says the organisation, “32° East will provide fertile conditions for art makers, and expose audiences to entirely new possibilities concerning art, architecture and sustainability.”
