The ASSITEJ South Africa Kickstarter Creative Arts project kicks off this year from January 10 on a high note bringing together 50 artist facilitators from KZN, Freestate, Northern Cape and Gauteng.

The Artist facilitators will go through an intense nine-day experience of exploring, sharing and unpacking of topics within the creative arts CAPS document for the intermediate phase (Grades 4 – 6). The exploration includes Drama, Dance, Music and Visual Arts.

Kickstarter is Assitej’s highly-acclaimed and awarded arts-education programme supporting teachers to be able to deliver quality Creative Arts in schools. It targets teachers and community-based artist facilitators to build capacity in delivering the formal Creative Arts curriculum at Intermediate Phase. It uses an experiential, easily accessible, step-by-step methodology, which has been tried and tested with teachers as the Creative Voices methodology since 2000.
