THE KwaDukuza Art Centre was established in November 2017 and offers the youth and school children of KwaDukuza and surrounding areas an opportunity to engage in stage plays (acting), dance, music, visual art, script writing, stage management, theatre lighting and sound. The art centre which is based at the KwaDukuza Town Hall benefits the youth, and makes them realise that through their talents, opportunities to greatness are opened and can help the disadvantaged realise their potential. The art centre is not only beneficial to the youth, but it will also put KwaDukuza on the map as far as art is concerned. The centre aims to make youth, graduates and school leavers aware of the opportunities available and show them that they don’t have to move to other places like Johannesburg or Cape Town to pursue their dreams. The centre also serves as an entertainment medium for the people of KwaDukuza as they don’t have to travel to the Durban Playhouse or the Bat Centre for entertainment.Loveo Mngadi of the centre said that the KwaDukuza Art Centre also offers Theatre in Education (TIE) by dramatising English and IsiZulu literature genres prescribed for matric students. “Our team assists by acting out the prescribed literature genres and we invite matric students to watch at the KwaDukuza Town Hall. A scheduled timetable would be sent out to schools so that schools can use time and dates that are suitable for their pupils.” For more information people can call Philangenkosi Zibani on 061 933 7259 or Loveo Mngandi on 074 752 7306.
