Eugene Kavuma is the founder & director of Kampala Design Week.

We caught up during the 2nd KDW at his home in Uganda, discussed the trials and tribulations of starting a design festival, his design travels, collaborations with the British council and NEON Studio and how they turned 100 wooden stalls into an installation for the festival.

He also talks about the $700 bet on his own exhibition, curating Uganda's creatives and more. Find him @kavumae & @kampaladesignweek
