Digital Development Workshops

For artist growth, support, and development, we organise and manage digital (zoom) workshops, training  and mentorships, led by skilled industry professionals from across Uganda/East Africa and the United States. Our work encourages cultural exchanges to break the boundaries of African culture, and make the rest of the world more receptive to the Black Experience in works from and by Artists in Ugandans, other parts of African or African Diaspora. This is part of our program

Film & Theater Projects

We write, develop, produce and direct social change film, critical theater, advocacy documentary film, and Art Photography. Our Anthologies of Advocacy films and theater productions run along along side our annual Women = Youth Film Apprenticeships, to support filmmaking among marginalized communities in Uganda and East Africa. Our productions benefit from international collaboration for high quality work that can compete on the global stage.

African Diaspora Content
We create, develop and produce multimedia content about and for African immigrants in the diaspora, for audiences on the continent to experience international livelihood through the unfiltered lens African nationals living in USA, other parts of Europe and America. Our shows mirror racial equality, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and break down stereotypes about Africans and Black/Brown people (both on the continent and in other nations around the world).
