THE Gcinamasi Arts and Heritage Trust has been working hard on realising its Founder and executive director Dr Gcina Mhlophe’s long-term dream of opening a multimedia Oral History Museum - Khumbulani Memory House.

The organisation has also been hosting a celebration called the Spirit of Light since 2012.
This event was originally focused on throwing a different spin on Woman’s Day Celebration where the 1956 Women’s March to the Union Buildings was created.
They decided that while it is also good to honour mothers and grandmothers for their bravery and resilience, society needs to shine a ‘spirit of light’ in South Africa on women who are doing positive things in their communities. At the event they will light candles and several spiritual leaders will open with prayers and deliver uplifting messages.
Every speaker is passionate about and how they are making a difference in the lives of people.

2008 saw the birth of the Nozincwadi Schools Festival in Durban. Every year at least 20 schools converge at the Festival Venue and celebrate with poetry, stories, choral verse, music , dance, and book reviews. - all presented by the pupils themselves.
This year we focus on “Turning Waste to wow” and the Festival is heading to the Valley of 1000 Hills on 8 September 2016 (International Literacy Day).
