This Public Symposium concludes ICI's Curatorial Intensive in Kampala. The Intensive's participants – 13 emerging curators hailing from 11 countries – will present the exhibition and project proposals they have developed throughout the course of the eight-day program.

The Curatorial Intensive in Kampala is organized in collaboration with the Njabala Foundation, and focuses on curatorial practices that promote the work of women, create support structures for artists adapted to their local contexts, and foster innovative thinking around what constitutes curatorial space. Drawing on the vibrant artistic and intellectual production in East Africa, the program immerses curators in a rigorous schedule designed to support them through the process of developing an idea for a project into a full proposal.
