DURBAN ARTSí ARTS & CRAFT WORKSHOP (article first published : 2005-10-6)

Durban Arts Associationís capacity building for the arts has impacted into 14 well-structured Local Arts Forum with legal entity such as registration under NPO, each having their own constitution. These Local Arts Forums originated from the clustering of 100 wards into 14 zones within the boundaries of eThekwini Municipality.

Four training, skills development and informative workshops took place in different fields such as Administration, Music and Fund-raising between February and September this year, along with the actual formation of the Local Arts Forums.

Though there is a demand for the follow-up on the workshops already given, the Durban Arts plan for capacity building for the year 2005 also included visual artists and craftspeople.

On October 26 and 27, Durban Arts will hold Arts and Craft Capacity Building workshops in the Durban City Hall. Participants will be selected by the co-ordinators of the Local Arts Forums. Those who are involved in craft but not aware of the LAF should contact Durban Arts to book a place.

Topics to be covered include Image Building in terms of business cards, brochures, developing and using brand, packaging and display, record keeping. There will be instruction on Pricing and Selling which includes basic bookkeeping, pricing, invoices and VAT, orders and commissions, delivery and new products.

Design and the Africa Style covers traditional skills, production skills and the technology, design style for a particular market, product development, individually and innovation, productivity, quality and materials.

Facilitators will be drawn from Khanya Training and Development Centre, a service provider chosen by Durban Arts for capacity building.

More information from Brenda Toko on 031 312 1236 (office hours).

The Durban Arts capacity building initiatives are proudly sponsored by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and eThekwini Municipality.
