On today’s show, we were joined by Nigel Vermaas – our arts fundi to tell us what’s hot and what’s not in the Art sector.
We closed off the show with an interview with Janneke Strijdonk-Xulu – MMINO Co-ordinator. Mmino provides funding to both organisations and individuals and attempts to establish and strengthen mutually beneficial relationships between Norway and South Africa in the field of music. Again this year they are inviting South Africans wishing to start music projects in South Africa and Norway to apply for the funding. There is also the opportunity for exchange projects between South Africa and Norway. Janneke explained more about the application process.
