Purpose of the Event:
The purpose of the festival is to highlight the creative people in our community in Newcastle and thus create and maintain a productive creative economy that sustain the artist in Newcastle and Northern Natal. We are allowing people to see the arts and culture that exists in the township and the township as a space for the production of social and creative life. With the festival we want to unite the artist and community, and make the community aware of the creativity in its midst. The festival also creates exposure to the arts and hopefully inspires other latent talent to come to the fore. With the Maboneng Madadeni Township Arts Experience, we were attempting to familiarise the township with arts, and how far it can go, and ideally, cultivate a local market for our artists.
