George Civic Centre, March 2009
Jazzart presented a performance in George in conjunction with Artscape's Audience Development and Education Department and renowned Cape Town artists such as Dizu Plaaitjies. Following extensive work in the implementation of the Artist in Residence Programme at George High School, this was seen as a perfect opportunity for Jazzart to make its presence felt within the broader community. Artistic director designate Jackie Manyaapelo, outreach director Gordon Andries, and fourth year trainee Mziyanda Mancam presented workshops at schools in the area that are not ordinarily serviced by Jazzart. The company presented four schools performances to 33 schools and two public performances to an audience of 1 800 community members at the George Civic Centre.
