Arts Interactive is an interactive group/gathering in Durban of those interested in the betterment of the Visual Arts.

Their next monthly meeting features guest speaker Carl Roberts. Well-known as a thoroughly engaging speaker and world-renowned sculptor, he will be talking on any topic that takes his fancy from his life as an artist, his views, news or ideas.

"Looking back, art was an obvious choice, as I have always made things,” says Roberts. “As a child I made clay pots from mud in the yard, cars from cardboard, and dragons from paper-mach√©. I enjoyed attending Elaine Savages’ art lessons during my school holidays. As an adult my interest in art continued. I carved leather goods in the Fire Department, wooden bookshelves in Phalaborwa and painted fantasy landscapes whilst a truck driver. In 1995 I became a full time artist, and that is where I am today."

Arts Interactive takes place on March 11 at 18h00 for 18h30 at the Hellenic Hall, Browns Drift in Durban North at the Pub area – Eat Greek. Entry R75/head (dinner included). Drinks can be purchased. RSVP asap for catering purposes on

NB: Each Arts Interactive is specifically catered and pre-ordered – so patrons cancelling just beforehand or who not arrive, make the organisers liable to pay for their food.
