Clanwilliam Arts Project and Magnet Theatre Seek Funding for T-Shirts

The Clanwilliam Arts Project
Children at the Clanwilliam Arts Project in their T-shirts

The Clanwilliam Arts Project - locally named the Lantern festival - has been co-ordinated by Magnet Theatre for the past 14 years. The project, which runs annually in September in the small town of Clanwilliam in the Cederberg mountains, is 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 been able to receive a beautiful T-shirt with the name of the year's performance and an image from the story. This T-shirt is a much longed for object by the children and marks the culmination of their week-long participation in the project.

Now in our 15th year, our budget does not stretch to the printing of the 800 T- shirts. We cannot disappoint the children and are looking for anyone who might be able to help us with sponsorship of these T-shirts: any contributions towards the R35 000 that we need to brighten the children's lives.

Please email Margie at Magnet Theatre (margie@magnettheatre) for further information if you are able to help, or if you know of somebody who might be able to help. Magnet Theatre wishes to thank the following organisations without whom we would not be able to sustain our 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.
