Artists at Fest...
As an artist what do you think of the festival?
Joseph Chifamba of Chif African Jewels “It is well organised and gives us an opportunity to market our products and also gives us a well needed bonus”.
Nomonde Madlalisa of Handmade Collection” It started very good except for the weather on Tuesday. Wednesday things picked up. I even have orders for people from the UK”.
“It’s a good way to express our work to the people and to get recognition. It is a privilege and great exposure and a better chance of commission”. Mind Shana of Fine Artist
What do you think artists think of the festival?
“Think artists see this as an opportunity for them to showcase their talent for those who haven’t received recognition”. Jostine Len responds.
