The talented finalists from around the country travelled to Joburg in the hope of winning a scholarship to pursue their dreams. Having spent the week working with specialist coaches, and fuelled by passion for their art, the students gave a fantastic performance. ACT CEO Marcus Desando responded to the first event under his leadership saying: “It was heart-warming to see the kind of young talent we have in this country. I would like to congratulate the winners and thank the sponsors for a great evening. We wish all the finalists the best in their future endeavours.”
The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) announces its new-look Scholarships format, a decision that was taken this year when ACT announced many changes to its funding strategy.
Funded by the Nedbank Arts Affinity and the Dramatic, Artistic and Literary Rights Organisation (DALRO), the 2017 Scholarships Programme presented by ACT is aimed at young South African performers in Grade 12 and aspirant performers under the age of 30 who are not currently registered in any course. The categories this year are acting, singing, dance and musical theatre.
After an intense search which was undertaken across all nine provinces, the ACT team and a judging panel have chosen well-deserved finalists in the relevant categories. No longer do contestants have to enter doing the triple threat and now have the chance to compete in singing, musical theatre, dancing and acting.
