Minister Meyer to Speak at Strokes of Genius Prize Giving
On Wednesday, 26 September 2012, Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Dr Ivan Meyer, will speak at the Strokes of Genius Prize Giving Function at the Opera Bar, Artscape Theatre Complex, Hertzog Boulevard, Cape Town.
A project of the Shoprite-Checkers Development Trust, Strokes of Genius is an innovative art initiative that recognises the immense wealth of artistic and cultural talent existing in South Africa and aims to develop this largely untapped source of job creation opportunities and entrepreneurial expertise. As part of its commitment, the Strokes of Genius project seeks to promote the development of art amongst young people and accordingly presents an art competition for secondary schools. This offers learners the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents and a chance to win a bursary to further their studies.
