On 21st-25th March 2022 the project committee and PhD students all met at Makerere University in Kampala. It was our first meeting in-person since the project started up and we were glad to get to know each other better. We also got the chance to meet the MSW students at Makerere University. The gathering at Makerere marked the beginning of the PhD period for our students. They all presented their projects and received feedback from project members and supervisors. In addition, two seminars were held: Researching everyday lives, facilitated by Ann Christin Nilsen and Community social labs, facilitated by Janestic Twikirize. A part of the social program was a visit to Ndere Cultural Centre for an encounter with local musicians and dancers.
