Japan Rehabilitates the Audio Visual Equipment of
The National Theatre and Cultural Centre
The government of Japan has today handed over newly rehabilitated equipment to the Uganda National Theatre and Cultural Centre. The contract to repair the audio visual equipment of the Uganda National Theatre and Cultural Centre had been signed between the Embassy of Japan in Uganda and Unics Uganda Limited in November 2011.
This was a follow-up grant project of 17,003.4 US Dollars aimed to repair the audio visual equipment procured under the Cultural Grant Assistance from the Japanese Government back in 2002.
The National Theatre has vigorously been working to promote the traditional and modern art activities through providing services in both theatre and audio-studio, organizing training for youth groups and the annual national festivals.
“We are very much aware of the importance of cultural heritage as a solid basis for sound development in any country” said H.E. Kazuo Minagawa, Ambassador of Japan to Uganda, at the handover ceremony.
This donation is part of the assistance from the Japanese Government Cultural Grant that aims to promote cultural development and performances of art, higher educational activities and preservation of cultural heritage in developing countries.
