Hence since 2001, various community based activities were planned and executed, but to continue the legacy of activities with other professional bodies and also have a continuum of programmes, performing members and founders felt the need foran official body. To formalize the community focused services a formal organisation was planned and on 23rd January 2006 a society by name ‘Center for Arts and Media Studies’ was registered under the Andhra Pradesh Societies Registrations Act., 2001 (Act) No. 35 of 2001 with the Office of the Registrar of Societies, Ranga Reddy District bearing No 103 of 2006. Later the same was rechristened as Center for Arts Media and Social Welfare- CAMS.
Our technical advisory group includes professors from reputed universities, institutions, reputed practitioners of theatre and other forms and social workers.
We undertake and facilitate training programmes, conferences, seminars, workshops on performing arts, fine arts, digital arts, films other media related subjects. We also focus on awareness programmes and make people understand the importance of theater and other art forms and its relevance to society by conducting workshops, campaigns and seminars for exchange of information. We support learning and acquiring social skills by using arts and media as tools by involving children, parents, teachers and other community members.
