Abstract: The main purpose of this research is to show how indigenous knowledge about form, patterns and colours can improve visual reading in certain communities. In other words storytelling is used as a communicative tool. The author is integrating Ugandan art forms into contemporary art practise. He uses the case Buganda in this study, but this system can be adapted in any community.
