“Our intention is to give the art
    and cultural fraternity a voice”.

june-july 2012 : edition 16

I Say……. Ethics and funding are two topics constantly in the news with both areas critical to a physical and mentally healthy society…………

Empathy our lack or possession of this particular quality was not something I chose as a theme for this edition but it just seemed to permeate nearly every article or request for help that I received.
Animals, animals, their welfare is something you will all want to, and dare I say, have to read especially if you have the interest of animals and humans at heart. See the book review of the Science of Evil by Psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen of Cambridge University. Also reviewed is THE GREAT CAGE ESCAPE by Louise van der Merwe with illustrations by Pandora Alberts suitable for Grades 5 -7

A Stroke of Genius : Preventing Stroke by Erica du Toit makes for very scary reading but will only benefit you if you are leading an unwise lifestyle. And whilst you are about it do something about Eat for the Earth 2012 | Host a meal and help save the world this World Environment Day. A Yuppiechef Bite Sized initiative in support of Soil for Life.

For all you television arm chair detective who were not able to attend `Adventures in Forensic Anthropology’ you can listen at your leisure by downloading Alan Morris's podcast which has been published on UCT Open Content. click on the link 'Go to Adventures in Forensic Anthropology'.

And the Muda Hunt? We all have to become more economical and more efficient no matter what field we are: read this article and start the process.

Not to be missed is Photographic Artist, Victoria Romburgh’s exhibition of various collections of her creative organic works at The Beautiful Life Gallery in Bree Street Cape Town. At the Cape Gallery in Wynberg there is a host of artist’s work on show in their Annual Winter Solstice Exhibition and at the Blou Donki Gallery, Clarens is something I would love to attend especially in the beautiful setting of this gallery - A Solo Exhibition by MAKIWA MUTOMBA

The Splitpiece murals by Falco and Rasty create a rare opportunity to tell the story of different people, cultures and landscape. Each segment tells a different story. The completed project will comprise a living gallery, part of a continuing story in the Mamre and Pele community. Read a brief historical over view of this disadvantaged community and let me know if you can see a way of providing assistance especially anything that leads to job creation.

The Africa Burn happening is a creative approach to sustainability and looks like a lot of ingenuity was used. Start early planning for the next one.

Who Wants to be a Starving Artist Anyway by Eric Bolsmann in our book review section will be of great interest to all our readers as will The Migrant Artist’s Handbook: A guide to living and working in Cape Town & Johannesburg

Read about the Unite as One campaign which extends arts & culture opportunities to local students

In this edition we launch a new page, Historical Dates from our Past covering June/July. This new series will bring to the readers attention interesting details of men and women and events that occurred in our country from a social and cultural scene.

And no I have not left out the performing arts. FTH:K celebrates its seventh birthday in June with celebrations and a Baxter Theatre run.

And finally in the words of Danielle Barnes who took a trip from Kirstenbosch to Hout Bay in one of our big red tourist busses…….` I am again struck by the feeling of home and the pride I have in my city for how it has grown from the past and is heading towards the future. I am a Capetonian and proud of it.
