She has contributed articles for Contemporary And magazine, Start Art Journal and Art Africa Magazine as well as on her personal blog. Before enrolling for her MA, Kazungu not only worked with Makerere Art Gallery, 32 Degrees East the Ugandan arts Trust, Goethe Zentrum Kampala but also assisted in many exhibitions in Kampala, most notably the Kampala Art Biennale 2016 where she served as curatorial assistant.
