Comments from distinguished South Africans on the importance of the arts in education.
Sibongile Khumalo: Developing the young of this country through the Arts is a human right. Exposing the young of this country to all aspects of the Arts is a development imperative…(my dream is) that through arts education and the holistic development of our young, this nation will grow into an empathetic and compassionate one.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu: My dream is that it will be possible for each child to reach for the stars and have the right and means to be anything they want: be a ballerina, an artist, an orchestra member, an actress… because the sky would be the limit.
ASSITEJ SA has a dream for the arts in South Africa and it is one that embraces every child and young person in our country in offering access to the best quality theatre and performing arts experiences especially created for them.
