Hi, I am Thobile Maphanga and I am from KwaZulu-Natal, Durban.

I have been selected as one of 35 participants to attend the Atelier for Young Festival Managers in Montreal Canada in June 2022. I am exceedingly proud to be representing South Africa on this global stage.

The Festival Academy, an initiative of the European Festivals Association (EFA) offers leadership training and professional exchange to festival makers from
across the globe.

Why me?

I am committed to using the arts to negotiate our individual and collective healing and belief in the power of art to change perspectives and hearts. I see the role of artists, cultural spaces, and festivals to be more vital now than ever & am passionate about amplifying voices that have been othered and silenced.

I believe through festival platforms we can do this more frequently and effectively. I am eager to create spaces where people can commune and exchange ideas, thoughts and provocations in a respectful manner & where diverse voices can be heard. 

My experience at the JOMBA!
Contemporary Dance Experience, an international Durban-based dance festival
housed at the University of KwaZulu Natal’s (UKZN) Centre for Creative Arts
(CCA) has prepared me to make the most of this opportunity and gain valuable
lessons from this prestigious international forum. I will in turn share the rich
variety of our South African experience.

How you can help.

Your donation, no matter the amount, will fund the travel and related costs of attending the Atelier. By contributing to this fund, you are assisting not only my personal growth but helping our community to remain relevant, connected and ever-growing through sustainable practices.
