Arts Festival 2013
This year's Arts Festival will be held from the 4th to the 6th
The Arts Festival of Southern Africa takes place annually. The Festival is there to encourage artists in any and every field of
the arts. Artists are an invaluable part of our society. A nation in
which its artists are suppressed - and there have been a great number -
is a drab and unhappy nation. Based on the now famous Saint
Hill® International Arts Festival, our Arts Festival has gone from
strength to strength and is the highlight of the year for performers,
artists, and audiences alike! The Festival is held to provide a
positive, non threatening platform for all its performers.
The philosophy behind the festival...
The rehabilitation of that art-ability of a
culture is a tremendously valid undertaking, and will repay a culture a
thousand times over for any effort made in that direction. A culture is
only as great as its dreams and its dreams are dreamed by artists."
- L. Ron Hubbard (Science of Survival, Book
2, Chapter 18)
This statement by world-renowned humanitarian and philosopher, L. Ron
Hubbard, is the inspiration and philosophy behind the Arts Festival of
Southern Africa, which has as its purposes:
- To rehabilitate the art-ability of people;
- To create a safe environment for Artists that is without
criticism, invalidation or evaluation, and where Artists of all
levels feel confident to create their art;
- To provide a platform where professional Artists or people who are
considered to be experts in their field can deliver workshops to
help, assist and train would-be Artists, thereby awakening the
art-ability of people;
- To impart the technology in the field of Arts as contained in the
works of L. Ron Hubbard. Our concerts are renowned for their
friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Our audiences are there to see
you win, not fail!
The arts can be tough, especially when lack of recognition or
invalidation of your skills is used to put you down. Our Festival is
intent on building up your confidence while having a great time, to the
point where previous fears of performing or showing your art, fades away
and you will finally know your own worth.
