Dreaming The New: Amagugu
On: Tuesday, 9 September 2008 at 21h00


As we reflect on our history and our own lives, we draw strength from men and women who have dared to dream, dared to fight and dared to live. We draw courage and strength from the people around us within our communities, churches and families.

Fatima Dike and Nico Pooka are just a few of the many who, through their contribution to arts and culture, have changed the lives of people around them.

Amagugu follows the stories of these artists whose lives started as a blank canvas and turned into a Picasso.


Dreaming The New: The Nature Of Creativity
On: Tuesday, 16 September 2008 at 21h00


The Nature of Creativity follows three South African visual Artists - Mthunzi Ndimande, Danelle Janse van Rensburg and Nthabiseng Montshiwa as they reveal the nature of their creativity, their thoughts on education, on curating exhibitions, public art, and most importantly, the love of art itself.

The three artists enroll in an Addict Creative Lab workshop, and then decide to collaborate on an art piece to brand South Africa. The documentary traces their progress, the development of the piece in its different stages and the rush to finish on time. What is the pressure of collaboration? How does it affect an artist’s process?

Will their artwork be accepted by the Addict Creative lab for their next publication? Will it be exhibited? Will their concept of South Africa be enough to take them to the World Creative Forum?

Life is Art takes viewers into the world of award-winning theatre director Mpumelelo Paul Grootboom. Paul’s art reflects the broad canvas of our country, forgoing the “rainbow-nation” picture perfect story and focusing on real people with real issues.
