Duc in Altum – Dive into the Deep, Pre Launch @ SMACK

St. Mary's College Kisubi, Uganda | August, 2016

One week before the official launch, the sixth book in the Ebifananyi series was pre-launched on the grounds of the school it is about. To make it even more special this was done on the patron saint’s day of St. Mary, the namesake of the school.

The teachers of St. Mary’s College Kisubi’s art department liked the idea of an exhibition, and transformed their room into a showcase of student- and recent alumni work. The images that follow show both the art room, as well as the installed images and the student engagement with the XXL book with ‘facebooks’ the school made since 1957. Fathers, grandfathers and brothers (this is a boys only boarding school) were recognised.

Documentation of the ‘real’ book launch, that took place during the Writivism Festival, August 22nd 2016, at the Uganda Museum can be found here. The European launch takes place in Biel, Switzerland in September 2016.
