"Standard Bank Young Artists 2012" South Africa Off The Beaten Path Tip by Moirads
South Africa Off The Beaten Path: 165 reviews and 190 photos
These are deserving performing and visual artists who are under forty years old. They are given a boost by Standard Bank, which, amongst other things, commissions work from them for the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in July each year.
Keep your eyes open on local arts pages (a good one is www.artslink.co.za) for these young artists.
Kelebogile Boikanyo for music (she is an opera singer, a soprano and only 24 years old); Mikhael Subotzky for visual art (photographer); Princess Zinzi Mhlongo for theatre (director); Bailey Snyman for dance (he is a choreographer) and Africa Mkhize for jazz (he is a wonderful pianist).
It is not always easy to access where these artists can be seen as they don't, obviously, have public work on display at all times, but if you are planning to attend the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown in July they will definitely be there.
Because their great talent will linger on in future years too this tip won't date in respect of being assured of an interesting arts experience down the line.
