Rand Merchant Bank, ATKV & Zoo Biscuit Respond to Magnet Theatre & Clanwilliam Arts Project
The Clanwilliam Arts Project and Magnet Theatre reached out last week for help with the funding of the T-shirts that each of the children who take part in what the locals have christened the "Lantern Festival". Magnet Theatre wishes to thank the following organisations who have so generously come on board and enabled them to go ahead with the T-shirts: Rand Merchant Bank, ATKV and Zoo Biscuit. Magnet Theatre would also like to thank Michelle Constant from BASA for her help.
The Clanwilliam Arts Project has been co-ordinated by Magnet Theatre for the past 14 years and runs annually in September in the small town of Clanwilliam in the Cederberg mountains. Built around a week-long series of multi-disciplinary arts workshops for 800 children from the area, the project celebrates the history and culture of the region and the energy, life and talent of their children.
Every year, each of the children have received a beautiful T-shirt with the name of the year's performance and an image from the story printed on it. This T-shirt is a much longed for object by the children and marks the culmination of their week-long participation in the project. This year's the budget did not stretch to the printing of the T-shirts and it is with gratitude that Magnet Theatre is able to announce that this year's participants will not be disappointed thanks to the generous donations from the companies mentioned above.
Magnet Theatre also wishes to thank the following organisations without whom they would not be able to sustain their programmes: the National Lottery Distrubution Trust Fund, Rand Merchant Bank, the Oppenheimer Memorial Trust, the HCI Foundation, the Distell Foundation, the Jacob Levy Trust, the Johannesburg Repertory Company, the Milagro Foundation, Rooibos Limited and the University of Cape Town.
