EXCELSIOR (article first published : 2005-05-16)

Taking place in Durban from May 7 to 28, the National Creative Arts Youth Festival, initiated by Professor Elizabeth Sneddon and now in its 16th year, is a celebration of the achievements of the youth of South Africa. Directed at young, predominantly school-going people, the festival has achieved remarkable success in building a broad multi-cultural base and participation.

Taking place at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on May 18 at 19h00, the Excelsior programme celebrates the achievements of the Youth of KwaZulu-Natal. It is outstanding for the range of the age groups of the participants and for the freshness and vitality of the work. This testifies to many hours of strenuous effort and disciplined endeavour on the part of dozens of young people and their skilful tutors who strive to externalise in worthwhile creative achievements, the joy in developing in their skill in various forms of artistic activities.

Tickets R20 from Computicket. More information from the Festival Director, Ann Curry, on 031 201 9312 or 031 661 751 or e-mail: ncayf@iafrica.com

The success and the meritorious educational goals of the Festival have been made possible by the emergence of like-minded sympathisers such as The Israel South African Foundation, The Aaron Beare Foundation, Pick ‘n Pay Retailers, The Anglo American Chairman’s Fund, The Fulton Trust, The National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, Distell (Pty) Ltd, The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra, The Durban Institute of Technology and The Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.
