ROTARY EXCHANGE ART (article first published : 2000-10-12)

Early in 2000 the Rotary Club of Durban organised an art exchange between local school children and their peers in Romania. Produced in collaboration with a Rotary Club in Romania, the idea was to encourage youth to become aware of children in other countries, almost like a pen-pal exchange.

Taking part were four schools in the greater Durban area: Durban Girls High, Durban High (DHS), Kingsway and Zwelibanzi High in Umlazi. Their artworks were sent to Romania where they appeared on a highly successful exhibition. The pieces have now returned to be exhibited in South Africa, accompanied by works produced by children in Constanza, Romania.

Themes explored by the children include Our Community, The Environment and Peace.

This Rotary Art Exchange Exhibition organised by the Rotary Club of Durban opens at the NSA Galleries on October 15 at 16h00 and runs until October 2000. It will be shown in the Park Gallery and on the Arts Café Wall.
