VAN ZYL SLABBERT AARDKLOP CHAIRMAN (article first published : 2003-04-6)

Dr Frederik Van Zyl Slabbert has been appointed as the new chairman of Aardklop National Arts Festival. He succeeds Neil van Heerden, who recently stepped down after five years in the same position. Dr Slabbert’s appointment has been greeted widely with enthusiasm.

Aardklop’s managing director JP Landman described Dr Slabbert’s appointment as follows: “The board is absolutely ecstatic to have a man of his calibre leading Aardklop. We are immensely grateful that he is available and that he is willing to add impetus to the Aardklop effort. Not only is Dr Slabbert a renowned politician and businessman, he is also an outspoken lover of the arts. He has attended Aardklop previously on more than one occasion, either as a speaker at the Diskoers (discourse) programme or as a keen theatre attendant.”

Festival manager Giep van Zyl describes Dr Slabbert as exactly the right person to perform the task. “Someone with his credibility and stature can only strengthen Aardklop’s position. It is going to be unbelievable to work with him in the inner circles.”

This year’s Aardklop takes place from September 23 to 27 in Potchefstroom. More information from Tineke van der Walt at 018 294-7509 or e-mail: admin@aardklop.co.za or visit www.aardklop.co.za
