SANATA (article first published : 2000-10-22)

The South African National Amateur Theatre Association (affiliated to IATA - the International Amateur Theatre Association) was officially inaugurated at a meeting held in Johannesburg earlier this month. A national executive committee was appointed and TJ de Klerk of the online arts magazine artslink.co.za is an honorary patron. Some 14 groups and three individual members make up the founding members and an interim national constitution was also adopted.

The meeting decided to elect a national multi-cultural executive in bulk and the positions and tasks of office bearers will be formalised at their first committee meeting as will the aims and goals of the new body.

“This is an exciting and challenging era that The Body faces and is entering into,” says TJ de Klerk. “One of the main decisions taken was to highlight that although we are the national body for amateur theatre, we are fully inclusive and will stress the fact that we are going to be a broad-based community orientated body.”

For information on SANATA - how and why to join as well as for details of the constitution etc, contact acting chair Noel McDonald on (011) 636-2936 or 083 309-4315. Visit the website at http://www.artslink.co.za/amfest
