INKABENHLE Foundation will be hosting an arts festival on March 25 at KK Hall in KwaDabeka from 9 am to 6 pm.

Inkabenhle co-ordinator Talent Khanyile said the purpose of the festival is to promote the arts in KwaDabeka as well as empower young and upcoming artists.

The event will be attended by various well-known Durban personalities, namely Mpumi Ndlovu who plays Jabulile on SABC 1’s telenova Uzalo, drama lecturer Skhura Yani from the UKZN Edgewood Campus who will give talks on the arts, Skeem Saam writer Siboniso Mabaso and radio personality Mthunzi Xulu.

“The event will see various performances by local artists. We will also conduct workshops for those who have an interest in the film and theatre sector. We have artists who will come from as far as Phoenix, Umlazi, KwaMashu and Illovo.

“Inkabenhle’s vision is to see a world in which every young person attains the right to survive, to protection, development and participation through opportunities that the foundation offers. Also to serve the youth by providing opportunities that change their lives and create productive citizens and leaders of tomorrow. Our goal is to save young lives from falling prey to all evil forces and social issues that exist in many of our neighborhoods, such as crime, drugs and HIV/Aids.

“Our mission is to inspire change in a way the world sees the youth from townships, to reduce crime by creating job opportunities and skills development such as in sport, the arts, creative movement and drama.”

The foundation’s primary interests are the arts, sport, local business and social growth and development.

“Inkabenhle seeks to develop and improve the skills of emerging artists through performances, educational workshops, networking and mentorship, and also to encourage the youth in the community to participate in sport in order for them to have a healthy mind and body.

“We host business seminars in KwaDabeka to encourage the youth to engage in the business world, for them to be independent by opening their own businesses and creating job opportunities.”

The foundation has established several successful initiatives, such as the KwaDabeka Clermont Arts Festival (KCAF), the Inkabenhle tournaments, Youth in Business and the Inkunzi Isematholeni seminar.
