The Merafong Arts Society will host a roadshow at Maxhoseng Section Taxi Rank on Saturday 13 May. More than 20 artists attended a meeting at Tshepo Themba Development Centre in Khutsong on Friday, 5 May. Those present discussed ways to improve the arts in the area and create a united society of artists that will benefit all creative
people. The event will be the first initiative of the society in an effort to raise awareness of its role in the
community. An interim committee was established to take care of the administrational duties of formalising
the structure to become an NGO (non-governmental organisation). The artists received the idea with enthusiasm and said they were willing to participate in the upcoming activities that were discussed. Various artists, including rappers, singers, dancers and actors will showcase their talent and local visual artists will display their artworks. ‘Every artist is welcome to bring their work along. We will also be identifying talent and updating our database so that members can be notified about future events, training programmes and workshops. Merafong Arts Society also
aims to use art to combat issues such as crime, drug abuse and violence.
