Why you need a creative skill today.

The Creative Arts industry is far from what it was 10 years ago. We now live in a world of 24/7 news updates, social media influencers, streaming sites, hashtag campaigns, home studios, and more. Media training, especially knowing how to handle multimedia opportunities, has never been more important. That is why we at MUD&Co have designed several programs that make sure you use what you are learning immediately. Furthermore, we are constantly liaising with our clients and collaborators to ensure that our curriculum is current and meets the requirements of the new economy. So, whether you’re a novice, an experienced creative, or a company, these highly practical programs will enhance your career preparedness, research capabilities, and technical proficiency in a short space of time. Our programs were developed for a range of skills that include filmmaking, acting, photography, social media, dance, creative writing, fashion, modelling, dance, make-up, and more. At the end of the program you will be awarded a certificate of participation and a certificate of achievement, for completing your project.

Our team of seasoned academics, professionals, artists, and innovators have developed several skill-share programs to give you the practical skills and theoretical knowledge you need to build and sustain your creative career.
