ACT BURSARY FUNDING (article first published : 2007-01-19)

In addition to the funding provided to 54 arts, culture and heritage projects early in 2006, the Arts and Culture Trust (ACT) recently announced bursary funding for a further four formal and informal institutions for the 2007 academic year.

These include two KwaZulu-Natal organisations. The first is The Department of Fine Art of the Durban University of Technology which offers training in visual art, entrepreneurship, professional practice, museum and gallery practice, and community workplace learning.

The second is the Durban Music School which 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 other two recipients of bursary funding are the International Library of African Music (ILAM) and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU).

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. For more information call ACT on 011 802 7646 or e-mail projects@act.org.za
