Founder & CEO

Jonah Batambuze is a Ugandan-American, interdisciplinary artist, storyteller, and the founder + CEO of the BlindianProject. His experiences as first gen born in Chicago and raised in the cornfields of central Illinois are the foundation of his work today, centered around; community, identity, and belonging.

 

Following a successful collegiate Basketball career (Lewis University, 2001), an opportunity to study International Business in Dublin, Ireland, changed his life. In addition, a chance encounter with an Indian princess (that would later become his wife) and exposure to new and diverse perspectives were seeds that led him to create the BlindianProject community years later.

 

Based in the U.K. since 2007, Batambuze's practice consists of creating symbolic works that are often participatory, center marginalized identities, and foster change at the intersection of Black x Brown culture.
