In the past couple of weeks our matatu has being custumized at the SOLECO’s workshop in Muyenga, Kampala.

The work is still ongoing but we are very happy to share some pictures of the process…more to come!

MatatArt team is working closely with welders and carpenters to create all the furniture required to carry around books, colours and instrument, the materials needed for our art-based activities.

Despite the innovative features of the project, the interior design of the vehicle is being realized with local know-how and materials.

It is a pleasure to realize our project with SOLECO! The workers have faced this new challenge with enthusiasm and dedication to achieve a high quality result.

Furthermore, realizing this project locally, shows that is possible to create an different design by simply adding a bit of creativity to the traditional manufacturing techniques.
