This exhibition of photography and literature is linked to the Vura Music Project, a musical project that springs from the need to share and communicate through sound, metal and common ideals, crossing borders and cultures. But it is more than the project: it wants to show its context, the visual, sound and human landscapes in which it occurs. That landscape is none other than that of West Nile, in northern Uganda.
It is an exhibition that tells stories of primary stones and wild landscapes; of war refugees, who, although they have fled from a war that continues today, smile, share and move on, generating a community that lives together and overcomes its past despite pain and memory; of a Ugandan community that opens its doors to those who were its hosts.
It consists of a total of 50 photos, whose authorship belongs to María Jesús Pueller Madrid and Aritz Azparren Vicente. Each photo is accompanied by a text, freestyle and by various authors, these being indicated at the bottom of each text. All the texts have been created by people who, in one way or another, have been linked to the Vura Music Project. In addition, some of the photos are left without prefixed text, intended for the sample attendees themselves to complete the missing texts from their perspective.

DOCUMENTAL “RAICES PERDIDAS”
Solidarios con Arua/Arua Elkartasuna supported the audiovisual production company from Navarre Tripulante Produce in the short documentary project “Raíces Perdidas” which was shot entirely in Uganda. The documentary, the work of the Basque director Eymard Uberetagoena, aims to capture the social and cultural context in which the actions carried out by the NGO in Ugandan territory take place. The documentary was financed by the Government of Navarra, the NGO and the production company. The premiere will take place during 2021 and in 2022 the work to raise awareness will begin in different educational centers, houses of culture, cycles, etc.
Synopsis: The Ma’di people are paradigmatic for many other African peoples. Colonialism not only attacked its political and social structure, but also divided it into three different states. In addition, mainly due to the war, their traditional conjuncture has transformed rapidly and uncontrollably, in such a way that their culture is in great danger. The protagonists of this documentary highlight the need to regenerate culture, but also question some aspects of their tradition.
