NEW ARTS & CRAFT MARKET (article first published : 1999-09-19)

The iSambulo Cultural Expressions Forum (ISCEF) is the brainchild of artist and poet Fikile Mnguni. Using her computer skills and by collecting a database of emerging artists, poets and entrepreneurs in KZN, Fikile aims to create a forum of artists by the artists for the artists. At the moment, she has more than 200 members and the list is growing steadily.

Fikile was originally based at Farepark Market but has had to move from there and is awaiting promised assistance from the Durban Metro Council in terms of a new venue. However, her current lack of an operations base is not swaying her from her determination to host an exhibition on October 28 and 29 at Coastlands.

The exhibition, which will be opened at 10h00 by the Durban Metro Mayor, Cllr Obed Mlaba, will include performances by Jabu Khanyile’s Afro Fusion and the cast of Mbongeni Ngema’s Zulu. The exhibition of work by emerging artists and entrepreneurs will include African fashion, accessories and food displays as well as woodcarving, poetry, fine arts and photography. There will also be musical performances and the Woza Siko Lethu African Theatre will be represented. ISCEF members will be exposed to potential exploration workshops by business advisers on the second day of the exhibition which serves as the launch of a new Durban Sunday arts market.

The new market (name soon to be confirmed) is exclusive to members only. For bookings and membership, contact Fikile Mnguni on 083 730-0638.
