Vuka Workshops are an on-going programme of drama workshops in various township schools and the Grahamstown prison.

School Vuka Workshops: 
Weekly workshops are run with learners at Ntaba Maria, CM Vellum, NV Cewu, and the St. Mary’s Day Care centre. These workshops aim to introduce learners to the basic skills of collaborative performance and theatre making. The workshops emphasise the exploration of creative expression through the experimentation with group dynamics and ensemble improvisation to create a theatre event which is performed at the end of the year as part of the Makana Drama Development Festival.

Grahamstown Correctional Centre Prison Workshops:  
These workshops encourage creativity and positively develop expressive potential in the participants. The idea is to contribute towards their creative and effective rehabilitation. The workshops work towards the presentation of a theatre event at the Makana Drama Development Festival. In April 2010, inmates who are workshopped weekly at Grahamstown Correctional Facility were entered into the Eastern Cape Eisteddfod. This was an especially momentous event, as Applied Theatre expert Alex Sutherland and Ubom! orchestrated the adjudicators to go to the prison itself where the prisoners wowed them with group and individual drama set works. Results of a very high standard were achieved, with Double Gold, Gold, and Silver awards being handed out at the end of the events.
