A strong regional flavour is anticipated at the first ever South African Cultural Observatory (SACO) national conference, next week, driven by universities from across the Eastern Cape.
Following the final ACT | UJ Arts & Culture Conference Pitch Perfect battle on 13 April, two groups have each been awarded grants to realise their proposed creative projects. ‘Cultural Exchanges’ and ‘An Artistic Excursion’ hailing from Mpumalanga and Limpopo respectively, are the groups that came out tops.
Arts lovers will be spoilt for choice when tickets for the annual feast of theatre, dance, music, public art - and more - go live for booking at www.nationalartsfestival.co.za.
Since 2009, the Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) has been supporting arts students through their scholarship programme. The only difference this year, is that there are more scholarships on offer to Grade 12 scholars and first and second year university students than ever before.
