LAST week, in celebration of World Aids Day, a sneak preview of the Kwasuka Sukela: Building Bridges event was held at Sisipho Catering­ and Restaurant in the Kwa-Zulu-Natal Botanical Gardens.

Emcees Nosipho Mthembu and Siyanda­ “Stylez” Khoza kept guests entertained throughout the evening.

The main feature was an exhibition showcasing photography by Dante Kemp and Mongezi “Junkie” Ntaka, painting by Dawn Boell and poetry by Pretty Olifant.

The official Kwasuka Sukela: Building Bridges event will take place next Wednesday, 16 December at KZN Botanical Gardens and will be a family fun day with music, poetry, dance, DJs, performances and an exhibition.

The theme of the second leg of Kwasuka Sukela is Building Bridges with the central message of Unity Through Understanding - a reconciliation­ commemoration that encourages social cohesion, harmonious relations and nation building.

“Our initiative is about collaborations and telling stories through various­ art forms in nature’s surrounds.

“Kwasuka Sukela means ‘Once Upon A Time’. Our initiative aims to rewrite Pietermaritzburg’s chapters by showcasing and celebrating the vastness of our local talent, all while creating business opportunities for local companies and lending a hand to the development of our community,” said Pretty Olifant of Hot Toffee Communications.

Twenty percent of ticket sales will be donated to a poverty stricken 23-member family living in BB Extension in Imbali who are infected and affected by HIV-Aids.

“It seemed fitting then to host our activation on World Aids Day where we lit candles, observed a moment of silence and prayed for children, our brothers and sisters who died because of this epidemic,” said Olifant.

On 16 December, courtesy of Pacsa and as part of the exhibition, works by KZN’s photographer Cedric Nunn titled “This Is How We Live Live In KZN”, currently exhibiting in Frankfurt, Germany, will be showcased.
