The Nyanga Arts Creative Workshops


Nicknamed "Young Blood" by participants, this a young collective that stemmed out of the Thupelo workshops held at Nyanga Arts Development Center. Velile Soha and Ledelle Moe have coordinated two pilot workshops with a group of young learners from the area to begin and establish an ongoing and consistent biweekly Arts workshop at the center. Abongile, Nomusa Mtshali and Charles Palm have assisted in the classes bringing their unique creative insights as artists to the workshops. We will be introducing sculpture to the workshops and have plans to collaborate with local puppet and theatre artists, in the upcoming year ahead.

In October 2017 the students exhibited with the Black Ink collective at GUS Gallery in Stellenbosch. This venture allowed for a creative platform for all students to meet and for the older members of our groups to explain the deep history behind the radical act of imagining and creating work over the years.

In 2018 another workshop was facilitated by Abongile Ngqunge, Velile Soha and Ledelle Moe. The project culminated in an exhibition at The Spot Gallery in Woodstock, in collaboration with Stellenbosch's Black ink collective,
