Tusingwire initially experimented with eco-art while at Kyambogo University, where he first learned about the possibility of using trash to fashion works of art. “We can use what is around us to create treasure, employment opportunities, and make the environment better. There is a wonderful world of possibilities before us,” says Tusingwire. To further this concept, he became the lead organizer of TEDxKampala, which joins local artists in the quest for working with recycled materials in art.  The artists adds, “I shifted from doing artwork to just hang on walls, having little influence on society, to doing art that solves community needs. It’s helped me realize my value to society.”
