Project Summary

The Makerere-Bergen Collaboration in Ethnomusicology is based on the frame agreement between Makerere University (Uganda) and The University of Bergen (Norway).

The collaboration is between the Department of Music, Dance, and Drama in the Faculty of Arts at Makerere University and The Grieg Academy, Department of Music at the University of Bergen.

The collaboration consists of two main projects funded by two different sources:

  • Ethnomusicology in Uganda: Education, Research and Preservation of Cultural Heritage (2007-2009), funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) programme ACE (Arts and Cultural Education).
  • Ethnomusicology in Uganda: Education, Research and Preservation of Cultural Heritage (2007-2011), funded by The Norwegian Programme for Development, Research and Education (NUFU – Styret for Universitets- og høyskolerÃ¥dets program for utviklingsrelatert forskning og utdanning).

The two projects partly overlap, and the information on these web pages pertains to both projects.
