The Cape Cultural Collective (CCC) hosted its second concert in Tambo Village, Manenberg, last Monday, as part of their six-day human rights cultural community programme. The celebration took place at the Khanyisa Church Centre in the presence of more than 800 residents from both the Manenberg and Gugulethu communities.An Wentzel, spokesperson for the group, says that with funding from the Human Rights Foundation, the CCC was able to bring together various community organisations and schools to participate in the celebration and that of the 60th anniversary of Gugulethu.Both young and old residents joined in on a variety of activities presented by the group on the day. Local brass band The Street Kings, the Rosa Junior Choir, and Sidwell Mbaliswa, a male dancer from Likhwezi Arts, were among those to entertain the crowd on the day. “We might come from a poor and gang-infested community, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t celebrate our community. We have great stories to tell and have many talents all over the area. I am proud to be part of this beautiful occasion,” said Fay Daniels, a resident from Manenberg. The CCCwas established in 2007, as a non-profit organisation with the aim of providing a range of arts and culture projects on the Cape Flats, and is set to continue with several other concerts as part of their human rights cultural community programme within the next few weeks. The local areas to be celebrated next can be confirmed with Wentzel. V For more information on the Cape Cultural Collective’s next concert, call An Wentzel on 072 3366 385.
