Take just a few moments today to support the arts. Your words have the power to make dreams come true, and help #keeptheartsalive.  Visit the #BankOfDreams here

and leave a message of encouragement and support for the arts:

“This is an incredible initiative to help support artists financially,” says well-known multi award-winning Durban-based producer and director of KickstArt productions, Steven Stead.

“All you need to do is click on the link, and create a brief message of support for the arts and artists, and for every message received, Standard Bank will put money into a fund to pay creatives who exhibited their work on the virtual NAF. Please consider investing two minutes of your time to make a real difference in these artists' lives.”

At 3,700 messages, up to R500,000 will be unlocked for our fringe artists from Standard Bank - Arts. Make an artist's dream possible!
