The Transients, Charity Atukunda

The Transients, Charity draws inspiration from city vendors, whose resolve and resourcefulness in the face of ever changing rules is the only way they can make a living in this city. In a performance of commerce as second skin, set to a soundtrack of the bustling sounds of downtown Kampala markets, Charity draws our attention to how vendors physically carry the weight of their survival as they circumvent expensive rent, and over-policing. As she puts it, ‘you wear your hustle so it can’t be taken away’.
