Cultural Assets Centre


URDT has set up a cultural assets centre to promote heritage and cultural diversity

The URDT cultural assets centre is open to the public and receives around 1000 visitors each year.

URDT has plans to establishing a wildlife education centre. It does this in collaboration with the Uganda Wild Life Authority. It seeks volunteers to support URDT to attain that vision.

URDT is also a member of the African Peace Murals Uganda (APMU). Its mission is to promote Peace through Art and Culture. It participated in the first Art educators’ conference 25th July 2013  to explore art educational practices in Uganda at  primary, secondary and tertiary levels.

URDT was chosen as the APMU ambassador for the western region to prepare for the World Children’s Festival 2013 – 2016 Uganda Arts Olympiad. It is a global program that commences in classrooms worldwide, and inspires community celebrations of children’s creativity in many countries. It leads to the World Children’s Festival in Washington DC and culminates in international exhibitions at major venues in 2016
