MIDLANDS MEANDER CREATIVE FESTIVAL (article first published : 2005-05-30)

Showcasing the works of the artists and fine crafters of KwaZulu-Natal, the Midmar Resort will be alive with arts and culture with the Midlands Meander Creative Festival which takes place on July 16 and 17 from 10h00 to 17h00.

The event will feature an exhibition of visual art represented through the different art groups in KZN as well as a second display showcasing the work of the Creative Festival course presenters.

Stalls will display high quality local fine art, locally-made fine craft and appropriate agritourism products by individual application only.

There will be an open-air stage with performances by local musicians and performing artists as well as multi cultural food and beverage stalls.

A booking office will provide last minute bookings for the creative festival course and there will be a centralised registration venue for course attendees.

KZN MEC for Arts, Culture and Tourism, Narend Singh, will officially open the Festival at 15h00 on July 16.

The event will be marketed by the Creative Festival organisers, The Midlands Meander Office, the office of the Minister of Arts, Culture and Tourism, TKZN tourism and SA Country Life Magazine.

Arts groups who wish to showcase and promote their organisation, society or group are invited to apply for a stand in a marquee during the Expo. Art group displays must be of KZN origin (artist residing and working in KZN), unique and of high quality.

The cost of the stand/space for the two days will be R500 per group. The exact sizes of stands and layout of the marquee will be released soon. It is estimated that stands will be approx 3m x 4m in extent.

To apply, prospective groups need to prepare a profile that includes contact details; information on the artists the group represents as well as where and by whom artworks are made.
