This paper discusses art as a medium of expression and explores its application in the promotion of democratic principles and social justice in Uganda.

The role of civil society in political reform is based on ‘the idea of a positive, universalist view of the desirability of civil society as part of the political project of building and strengthening democracy around the world’ (Lewis, 2001). In Uganda, increased international financing for governance and political reform blended with an appreciation of the role of civic actors in this process have been foremost factors in accelerating the advance of CSO work around politics and public policy.
