Personal message

HELP! The Zululand Cartel is a small tribe of creatives living in Eshowe, Zululand. A proper mishmash of artists, writers, performers, songwriters, vagabonds and storytellers. We have recently been accepted to participate in the Fringe Festival at the South African National Arts Festival in Makhanda.

The Zululand Cartel presents...

Dave Starke
Musician, troubadour, singer-songwriter, chanteur, storyteller, cabaret artist.

Nish Pillay
Musician, hybrid percussionist, adventurer, tabla player, nomad, corporate refugee.

Clayton Human
Musician, maker of things, singer-songwriter, gangster gardener, ghost folk advocate.

Lizzie Gaisford
Musician, lover of frogs, singer-songwriter, artist, accordionist, tour guide, fish wife.

Cara Maccallum
Artist, kamikaze potter, texture enthusiast, drama llama, dreamer, sculptor, burner of oils.

Lindsay Phillips
Artist, ceramist, maker of dolls, puppeteer, whimsical poet.

Izzy Bardon
Writer, poet, woodland fairy, lover of life, storyteller, tree hugger.

Wendy Nicholson
Agent extraordinaire, artist, designer, mic stealer, hostess with the mostess.


However, it costs quite a lot of money to go to the festival. "Oh no!" We hear you cry! Luckily we are innovative, optimistic, enthusiastic souls with wild imaginations. So give us a hand (not the applause kind!)... Contribute R50 or R5000. Any and all contributions will be gratefully accepted! All the pennies will go into a fund to pay for the petrol to drive the 925km to the festival, accommodation for resting our weary art and culture filled heads, venue hire, materials for the exhibition set up, stage props and sensible necessary items! You would be supporting a mission to take a uniquely Eshowe flavoured smorgasbord of music and visual art to a whole new audience in a completely different province. We will be a team of Zululand ambassadors, putting our beautiful region into the hearts and minds of the festival-goers.

We have until the 31st of May to raise enough money to cover the above expenses and confirm travel, accommodation, venue hire, and show fees.

We are aiming to raise R35 000.
Accommodation for 7 people for 12 nights - R15 000
Petrol for 3 cars and a trailer (1800km) - R10 000
Venue hire, marketing, materials, and set design - R10 000

This really is an incredible, once in a lifetime career opportunity to present our creative work at the South African National Arts Festival. 

All monies raised will go directly into Wendy Nicholson's account, as manager of The Zululand Cartel funds.
