UMA is a fun, stimulating, and supportive community to grow in. It is also a place that thrives and develops because of the skills, energy, creativity, and contributions of our interns. Our 2020/2021 rebrand process affirms this as many of our interns were responsible for running aspects of our countdown campaign, social media strategy, web page review, media creation, and exhibition curation.
