FORT WEST FESTIVAL (article first published : 2004-10-9)

This second annual festival at Fort West in the Pretoria area from October 22 to 24 is a partnership between the Embassy of France and the City of Tshwane and is proudly hosted by the Fort West Heritage Foundation.

The Foundation is charged with the custody and curatorship of heritage and cultural activities germinating out of the rich material history of this unique village development in western Tshwane. The Fort West Heritage Foundation was founded in 2003 to promote heritage culture and the arts at the historic Fort West Village in Tshwane, the capital.

Fort West, with its diverse heritage ranging from 16th indigenous stone town ruins and 18th Zulu kraals to 19th century French built fort and stock houses and leper asylum, is a unique site which includes a wide-ranging history on one piece of land. The foundation aims to make this history visible and accessible through a formal calendar of programmes, functions and events.

For four years, visitors and tourists have come to know a little of Fort West's treasures through the numerous art exhibitions hosted by the Akha Museum of Modern Art, the tours and hiking trails, the 3 Generations, 3 Authors literary functions, and last years village festival.
