After 20 years of supporting the arts, the Nedbank Arts Affinity Programme is still going strong.
Since 1994, the dawn of South Africa’s democracy, Nedbank has supported arts, culture and heritage projects through its partnership with the Arts & Culture Trust (ACT). Since its inception, the unique Nedbank Arts Affinity Programme has donated nearly R15 million to ACT to support more than 800 South African arts, culture and heritage development projects – and it has enabled Nedbank clients actively to support these projects too, at no cost to them. As Nedbank celebrates 20 successful years of its Arts Affinity Programme, we also join in celebrating a landmark year for the arts, with the National Arts Festival, South Africa’s premier arts festival, celebrating its 40th anniversary. Through its ACT partnership, Nedbank is proud to support several thought-provoking projects, across several genres, making their debut at the Festival; which takes place from 3 to 13 July 2014 in Grahamstown.
