We are excited about arts initiatives in the Western Cape!
Art is life. It is an attempt to create some sort of harmony from severe diversity. A canvas covered in colour speaks to that space inside us where our truth is nurtured. Bodies in motion inspire onlookers to recognise their own mobility, and we all know that music is the universal language. Imagine the powerful effect if all the arts could be combined, and imagine if audiences could be inspired to take part in the recreation, exploration and performance of life!
That is what the Artscape Theatre Centre is doing. 18 February saw the launch of Education, Skills Development and Youth Programmes. The youth of the western cape is truly making a difference: children reach impossible dreams and are empowered to inspire others in their communities. They are sharing their skills and stories to make art. They showcase the possibilities of life. Of unity. Diversity. Of harmony.
