In an effort to bring back Gugulethu Arts and Cultre, Judy Mkoko decided to host a talent show on World Aids Day.

Mkoko is founder of an arts and culture group called United We Stand community building project, which focuses on traditional dance, marimba, pantsula, contemporary dance, drama, poetry, life skills and sport.

She said they decided to celebrate World Aids Day through arts which is why they hosted the talent show.

Mkoko said she was happy with the turn out because they got a chance to talk to the youth about an important issue which is Aids.

She said she has been running the project for the past nine years and without getting any funding from anywhere.

“I have not received funding for the whole nine years we have been in existence,” she said.

Mkoko said they have been invited to perform in the Italy World Dance Movement Competition, but without funding, this might only be a pipe dream.
