Show Notes

In this episode, Katongole Henry Nathan, a well-known artist in Uganda-East Africa, tells his personal story of when he decided to make art his profession. None of his family members encouraged him, invested in him, or even believed he could survive as an artist. But it is not only him, most parents and families in Uganda-East Africa do not want their children to become artists or to study an art subject at university or high school; these art subjects include dance, theater, music, art and photography.
