NAF DIARY: DAY SEVEN (JULY 7) (article first published : 2005-07-8)

Alright, alright, I’m sorry – I missed Days 5 and 6 but blame the schedule and the sheer mammoth task of covering three shows in a day and trying to review them before the sun comes up the next morning!

Fortunately, the sun has graced us with its presence over the last few days which has been an absolute joy. Long may it continue.

I wandered into the craft exhibition/sale housed in what used to be Paula’s Bakery in New Street the other day and saw some interesting work, particularly a good variety of the type of chunky necklaces that are in fashion at the moment. There was also someone selling knitted or crocheted garments which would also interest those who want the homespun funky look.

Today was the first chance I had to visit the Village Green and I could have done with an extra hour, at least. There are a number of stalls with exciting new ideas and hopefully I will get a chance to get down there for the Festival comes to a close. There is a tent specifically reserved for Eastern Cape art which I thought was a very welcolme feature.

Tomorrow, the media are attending a briefing by the National Minister of Arts & Culture, Dr Pallo Jordan, which is bound to be of interest.

All the productions I have seen are reviewed on the Festival pages and in the individual discipline pages.
