Founded in 1937, the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Arts (MTSIFA), has a long and proud tradition of producing outstanding visual artists in Eastern and Southern Africa. You will meet some of the outstanding men and women artists and designers who have gone through the Makerere Art School gates. Several MTSIFA alumni have excelled in the government and civil service as ministers, members of parliament or directors of cultural institutions, and others have made significant contribution in the corporate business world, education, and the arts (visual, music and performing arts). Our mission is to build a very strong network of alumni community, which would serve as a source of inspiration and support for current undergraduate and graduate students. We aim to connect our alumni to MTSIFA, and to each other, in order to support Makerere University in its mission of teaching, research and community outreach. Some of the famous MTSIFA alumni are listed on this website.

A new MTSIFA Alumni Portal will be opened shortly. To be part of this vibrant alumni community, do start by providing us with your contact details and sharing with us your experience since you completed your studies at the MTSIFA. You may email to MTSIFA Alumni Co-ordinator at
