The Mazisi Kunene Museum, Glenwood: Friday 16 April

The Independent Artists of Durban in partnership with the Mazisi Kunene Creative Innovation Centre invite audiences to the inaugural Busking for a Cause activation featuring The Beat Route, George Mari, Philani Ngidi, Debbie Mari and Cherry Vine Collective, today (April 16, 2021) from 17h00 to 19h00 at The Mazisi Kunene Museum, 8 Delville Avenue, Glenwood, Durban.

Local Artists are collaborating with the community to Busking for a Cause. Organised in unity to preserve the local creative industry and to help manage the pressure caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Independent Artists of Durban in partnership with local organisations and the community have mobilised through campaigning, promoting public art, crowdfunding, as well as audience engagement to develop the Independent Artists Busking Project.

Busking is a very minimalistic method of monetizing one’s craft and introducing Independent Artists to potential clients. Busking for a Cause is a call to all independent creatives to collaborate and find innovative and creative ways to tap into spaces in and around their respective communities.

An invitation is extended to Artists and Art Fanatics in and around Durban to the weekly Vetkoek and Jazz Jam Sessions on Thursdays from 17h00 to 19h00. It’s a great opportunity to network and Jam. The Mazisi Kunene Museum will also be open for guided group tours, we all the curious minds are encouraged to visit the museum and learn more about the Poet Laureate, Author, Academic and Activist Professor Mazisi Kunene.

Bring your wallets as refreshments will be available on site, cooler boxes corkage R20. Entrance is free, but your donations go directly to Artists and ensuring they have the support necessary to flourish.
