FICUBC will be hosting an Art Exhibition at the AMS Art Gallery in the SUB October 10-15, 10am-5pm daily, as part of our Nothern Uganda Campaign. The exhibition will feature diverse visuals including Ugandan newspaper headlines and photographs.

There are three main aims of this event: 1) To raise awareness of the conflict in Northern Uganda among the UBC student population, 2) To encourage participation in this year’s Guluwalk (, and 3) to raise funds for our partner youth organizations currently operating in Northern Uganda.

The photos on display will be available for purchase at a price of $25, with all proceeds going to our fund for Northern Uganda. For more information on how you can sponsor a photo (so that we can produce as many as possible to be sold) please click on the link below:
