This project develops local buskers with skills such as personal development, vocal training, songwriting, music arrangement and production.
Beyond Busking Festival Day follows international trends where busking is considered a career by providing street musicians and artists with a sustainable income and platform to showcase their art.
This is our annual project that focuses on enhancing community wellbeing and highlights local artists in their own communities.
The focus of this 2-day event is Community Arts for Community Wellbeing and to highlight community artists by giving them a bigger platform in the main festival at the Castle of Good Hope.
“The curious beauty about african music is it uplifts even as it tells a sad story.”
“Music is a discipline, and a mistress of order and good manners, she makes the people milder and gentler, more moral and more reasonable.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
“Art arises when the secret vision of the artist and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes.”
