Teesa Bahana is director of 32° East Ugandan Arts Trust, a not-for-profit that promotes the creation and exploration of contemporary art in Uganda. As director she has supported the development and execution of projects such as KLA ART Labs for research and critical thinking through public practice, the third edition of LKA ART, Kampala’s public art festival, and residency exchanges with partners such as Arts Collaboratory and the Triangle Network. She is also currently overseeing 32° East’s capital project, raising funds to build the first purpose-built art centre in the country. With an academic background in sociology and anthropology, she is particularly interested in the intersection between art and Ugandan society, and how artistic environments should be protected and nurtured.

Four entrepreneurs come together to discuss their individual journeys from inspiration and idea to the process of building an app and establishing their new enterprise.

Each developer is at a vastly different stage of the process with some still in the research phase and others just about to launch. This conversation explores their journey, the lessons they have learned and the skills they have had to develop along the way.

A must have session for anyone who has ever through that they wanted to develop their own app.

Participants are some of our ICCE Entrepreneurs in Residence, supported by the Business Development Scheme – Sunny Kim, Irving Olvera, Gregory Lofthouse and Franziska Brandmeier
