ACT BURSARY FUNDING (article first published : 2007-01-1)

In addition to the funding provided to 54 arts, culture and heritage projects earlier this year, the Arts and Culture Trust (ACT) has announced bursary funding for a further four formal and informal institutions for the 2007 academic year.

These include the Durban University of Technology and Durban Music School as well as the International Library of African Music (ILAM) and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU).

The Department of Fine Art at the Durban University of Technology offers training in Visual Art, Entrepreneurship, Professional practice, Museum and Gallery practice, and Community workplace learning.

The Durban Music School teaches learners to play musical instruments. After graduation these young professionals may choose to take up positions either as music teachers or as musicians in bands and orchestras.

The International Library of African Music (ILAM) primarily provides practical training in African Music and Ethnomusicology. Students are trained in this field as a career option to either become researchers, lecturers, teachers and performers whilst others may choose careers in arts promotion, arts education and arts administration.

The Department of Music at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) provides training in the following primary areas: Music Theory, Music History, Music Technology, Music Education, Choral Conducting and Performance in various orchestral instruments.

ACT is supported by the following Founding Trustees: The Department of Arts and Culture, The Royal Netherlands Embassy; Nedbank; Sun International and The Vodacom Foundation.
