What you need to know:

  • The workshop, financially supported by the Enhanced Integrated Framework was held at Hotel Africana in Kampala.
  • The specific workshop had brought together people in the craft business and thus, Buule was there to represent the different drum makers from his community and village, Mpambire.

I arrived in Mpigi an hour early for my appointment with Isaac Buule, a drum maker. I had met him two weeks prior when he was attending a training workshop of the Uganda Handicraft Souvenir Development Project, under the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife with the International Trade Centre.
