Appointment to the ABSA KKNK Board

Kuns Onbeperk Board of Directors initiates a Theatre Indaba

I have been appointed to the Board of Kuns Onbeperk (Art Unlimited) which includes under its wing the ABSA Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) headed by Brett Pyper.  The National Arts Festival in Grahamstown is the largest in the country in terms of productions and events while the ABSA KKNK is the largest festival with regards to attendance.

As part of its vision to employ its resources, networks, expertise and experience in the broader development of the South African creative sector beyond the ABSA KKNK, Kuns Onbeperk initiated two Theatre Indabas to reflect on the state of the theatre industry and to propose a vision - and strategies to get there - for the future.  This should result in an initial policy and strategy proposal document by the end of 2012 to be used as the basis for more extensive consultation among theatre stakeholders.
