National Arts Festival CEO Monica Newton will be joined by her colleagues from the engine room of the Virtual NAF in a Q&A webinar tomorrow (Tuesday, April 21, 2020) on the how, what, why and when of this new iteration of the Festival.

Rucera Seethal (Artistic Director), Nobesuthu Rayi (Executive Producer), Zikhona Monaheng (Fringe Manager) and Nicci Spalding (Technical Director) will be on hand to answer your questions in a panel discussion facilitated by Ashraf Johaardien, CEO of Business and Arts South Africa (BASA).

Festival organisers comment: “Commonly asked questions will be addressed by the panel before taking questions from a live digital audience.

“If you have a burning question, please send it to and we’ll add it to the pile. If we don’t get to it in the live event, we’ll email you directly.

“Active participation is limited to the first 100 people to register but there is unlimited capacity for you to watch the event as it happens."

The webinar takes place at 16h00 on Tuesday April 21, 2020
