Creativity, expression through our art
Happy 9th Birthday KUUMBA !
Kuumba Arts Movement (KAM) has been running for 9 years. We are essentially a creative community organisation working with young people from our local community and within other areas around Wolverhampton. We use the creative and performing arts to help empower young people and allow them to express themselves looking at issues that affect them in a more creative way. KAM is committed to encouraging children to explore the creative arts through drama, dance, movement, music, singing, sound, film, poetry, writing and backstage duties. The children who attend gain many lifelong skills such as Self Confidence, Self Esteem, Team building, Peer Mentoring, Communication, Public Speaking, and an in-depth look in the world of theatre. All staff are professionally trained within Theatre, TV & Film and are CRB checked.

Please leave your comments and feedback on the documentary if you attended the event.
