Uganda Arts and Media Academy (UAMA) is a unique charity providing high quality training. Founded by UK Director-Jane Mote creator of BBC LONDON and Director Caroline Kamya formerly of the BBC, Managing Director of iVAD. The programs started in 2006 with a weeks training in video drama production and the second phase of the UAMA program was held early 2008. We are now actively looking for sponsorship to find a home for UAMA with the goal of creating an academy where talented creative young people can go from short courses to potential media degrees in different disciplines.

Past facilitators include: Caroline Kamya (iVAD, BBC, HBO), Cyril Nri(The Bill, BBC/UK), Jane Mote (BBC), Tina Davies (NORWAY), George Harris (National Geographic/Discovery) among others.
