Cape Town to Plet for bikers ?

Cape Town to Plet for bikers ?

06/07/2015 - 01:38
Local cycling organisations have backed the plan, saying the large-scale project - which is set to stretch over 520km - would position Cape Town as the cycling capital of Africa. The development of the new route is being driven by the Western Cape government, Wesgro, local municipalities and private stakeholders in the region. And while it is still in an early stage, with audits to assess what would bring the vision to life, the aim is to spawn a new so-called "cycling economy" as the influx of tourists provides a boom for local businesses and creates a myriad new jobs, said Winde.  read more

New World-class Contemporary African Art Museum at the V&A Waterfront silos to open in 2016

20/06/2015 - 15:44
Zeitz MOCAA, a new not-for-profit institution, will be housed in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront, with the V&A committing over R500-million to the development required for the establishment of the Museum. Built in 1921, and at 57m tall, the Grain Silo remains an icon of the Cape Town skyline. This investment will further the development of art in Africa and acknowledges the important cultural and financial contribution the visual arts sector makes. Considered by many to be the leading collection of contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora, Jochen Zeitz will commit his collection in perpetuity, underwrite the running costs of the Museum and provide a substantial acquisition budget to allow the Museum to acquire new important artworks over time to remain on the edge of contemporary cultural production. read more

REVIEW Digby and the Lullaby - waking up to harmony

03/12/2013 - 15:59
Reaching a row of flats in upper Sea Point on a warm moody night of clouds passing slowly by a waning moon, we aim for the sound of laughter and animated conversation that trickles down an outside flight of steps. Further on we approach a simple wooden gate left open. In a small courtyard we are welcomed by powerful fragrances of jasmine flowers and smiles from well groomed couples who seem to be in sync with each other. We are just in time, the concert of Digby and The Lullaby starts now. All seats inside the living room are taken. I pull a cooler box to myself to sit on in the open plan kitchen. That's when Rouchelle Hubsch opens her mouth for the first time.  read more

LAND. A three day programme, hosted by the Gordon Institute of Performing Creative Arts (GIPCA). Visual arts, installations, performances, public lectures and panels in the city from November 21 to 24: "The way Professor Jay Pather conceived the Land project was different from yet another platform for social and political advocacy or another archival exhibition of black and white photographs or dry academic conferences. While Pather acknowledges the deep social and political elements that inform land, he was more interested in how the performing and creative arts engage with these weighty issues. That and immediacy. Immediacy is connected to an interpretation of memory in keeping with his understanding of the thinking of philosophers Michel Foucault and Jacques Lacan. Pather explains that rather than being relegated to the past, they viewed memory as “an engagement with present” and it this which Land attempts to convey." read more
