Umuzi creates experiences for people to engage in creative content through exhibitions and events. We host an art/photographic exhibition on the first Thursday of every month which exhibits the work of our very talented alumni. Our aim is to give our alumni the opportunity and experience to showcase their work and network with potential employer partners for future production opportunities.
