ARROW PROJECT (article first published : 2006-03-13)

ARROW (Art: A Resource for Reconciliation Over the World) initiates programmes for the systematic development of the creative arts as a resource for reconciliation, cross-cultural understanding, the peaceful reconciliation of conflict and the encouragement of a deeper understanding of the crucial principles of interdependence.

Through the process of the arts the programme seeks to challenge negative myths and enhance the ability of people to identify key priorities for global development and peace.

The Bergtheil Museum Westville once more supports arts for reconciliation through collaboration with an Outreach project of Culture, Communication and Media Studies (CCMS), University of KwaZulu-Natal, Howard College, namely the ARROW Project.

This art exhibition supports the reconciliation objectives of ARROW through joining members of the Sydenham and Westville communities, old and young artists and artists from Durban and the Kalahari. The exhibition also aims to raise funds for ARROW learners to go to the UK in September 2006. Artists Bill Fisher and Vetkat Regopstaan Kruiper will donate 50% of all sales of artwork to the ARROW learners UK trip 2006.

Learners and teachers, predominantly from Bechet High School, Sydenham have been chosen to represent KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa in the international "What's it got to do with me?" ARROW project.

In Plymouth, UK, the learners will visit schools participating in the ARROW project where they will share their artistic talents. Whilst in Plymouth they will also share their experience in mural art through working with Plymouth ARROW learners in creating a decorative wall for the Desmond Tutu centre at The College of St Mark and St John due to open in November 2006.

The exhibition opens at Bergtheil Museum on March 23. More information from Alvine Calboutin (Curator Bergtheil Museum) on 031 203 7107 or Mary Lange (ARROW SA, CCMS UKZN Coordinator) on 031 266 2685.
