On Wednesday April 4, the soon-to-be-launched School of Communication, Cinematic and Creative Arts, hosted over 40 Journalism majors, staff and faculty for a four-hour workshop on DSLR camera operations at the Incubation and Innovation Center.

The workshop was led by Mr. John Wambugu; an MA Communication Studies student who is also a Canon Certified Trainer and Ambassador. The event is part of the School’s plan to encourage engagement by Journalism and Communication students with industry professionals, in order to equip them with professional technical skills.

The workshop was organized by Assistant Professor of Film Dr. Rachael Diang’a, and also featured Mr. Chris Kamau (Chairman, Kenya Actors’ Guild), Ms. Nduta Sialo (Secretary General, Kenya Actors Guild) and Ms. Matrid Nyaga (President of Dada Trust - organizers of Udada International Women’s Film Festival).

The soon-to-be-launched School of Communication, Cinematic and Creative Arts is offering two new programs in Summer 2018.
