The Eastern Cape Department of Education hosted its annual Cluster C Arts Festival and Exhibition in the Uitenhage District.

The Foundation and Intermediate Phase exhibitions were at Allanridge Civic Centre with the Senior Phase exhibitions at the Uitenhage Town Hall.

Each year, the festival showcases talents and skills of learners from different schools and age groups. Districts as far as Cradock, Graaff Reinet, Fort Beaufort, East London, Gra- hamstown and Port Elizabeth participated in the event.

This year’s theme “Movement ‘76 , as well as the slogan, “Youth can make a difference”, aimed to celebrate the 20 years of demo-cracy.

The aim of the exhibition is to help learners to discover talent they did not even know they had and to help them recognize and enjoy art around them.

The categories of participation were Dance, Music and Visual Arts.
