Dr. Lilian Nabulime

Makerere University, Kampala

Her Ph.D. was earned in 2011 from Newcastle (UK), and her thesis was: “The Role of Sculpture as a Communication Tool in Relation to the Lives and Experiences of Women with HIV/AIDS in Uganda.” Lilian has been affiliated with the art department at Makerere University since the early-1990s, and has had solo exhibitions of her multi-media work in the UK, Norway, Kenya, and the Netherlands, as well as in Uganda. She does wood and clay sculpture, paintings, and textile art works.

Her work was on display at the United Nations during the 2000 “Program of the World’s Women” in New York. In 2009, Dr. Nabulime made paintings to raise funds for Kyakondo Rural Women’s Development Association in Uganda. The impetus for her work are the conditions facing women around the world.
