Francis Nono

Nono leads the NMPDC and National Museum of Uganda's project to develop a traveling exhibition to visit schools in Uganda

Nono holds a bachelor of Arts (History and Philosophy) from Makerere University and a Master Degree in Public Administration and Management of Gulu University. Nono has over 14 years of experience in implementation of transitional Justice, memory and memorialization in postconflict Northern Uganda. He was a 2020 fellow at the Alliance for Historical dialogue and Accountability Fellowship program (AHDA) Columbia University. 

Growing up in Gulu, northern Uganda, Francis Nono’s entire childhood and adolescence were profoundly shaped by the Lord’s Resistance Army – Government of Uganda conflict that afflicted the entire region. In his current role, he is at the center of Uganda’s post-conflict memory and memorialization work, and a key player in how this relates to the national transitional justice process. He coordinates the NMPDC’s community and stakeholder engagements; spearheads support of memorialization processes like holding annual memorial prayers, documentation of past conflict events, community documentary screenings to catalyze public debates on transitional justice discourse; leads on artifact collection and museum development; leads in curating both permanent and travelling testimonies/mobile exhibitions across conflict-affected areas in Uganda.
