In Movement is a multinational team from many different backgrounds. Currently, the majority of our creative facilitators (teachers) are Ugandan artists. This is one of the keys to the success of this programme, because these facilitators are able to provide arts instruction as well as serve as role models for the students.
In Movement also supports ongoing professional development of the facilitators to ensure our programme’s standard of excellence.
