While we’re well into 2011, the Ars Education Department here at the Grahamstown Foundation has decided to make a conscious effort to keep our Festival Friends (and future ones!) informed and excited about our cycle of events! This includes creating a new website and a “Schools Festivals” page on Facebook and of course, this blog.
If you’re wondering who we are, what we do and why we do it, feel free to read up about us in the ‘About’ tab at the top of this page. Being Arts AND education based, we’re passionate about keeping the power of the arts alive in South Africa’s youth, while using it as a platform to educate, motivate and inspire the future leaders of our beautiful country.
Other than that, we’ll have a full gallery of pics from our past festivals for you to soon check out, especially if you’ve recently attended a festival and would like to see if you or any friends / favourite artists appear in them.
For those interested teachers, artists and scholars that would like to be involved in any of our festivals, please click on the “Contact” tab at the top of this page and feel free to get hold of us.
Think, Breathe, Be Creativity!
