A core team of ShiИdig Awé! artists took our diverse trans-artistic show on a tour through Limpopo province from 21-25 February, with shows in Thohoyandou, Namakgale, Nkowankowa, Polokwane and Lebowakgomo. The team partnered with artists based in each location to put on a public show integrating nearly every conceivable art form, from painting, drama and music to spoken word and comedy.
THE RELEASE PARTY
Have We Put Out The Fire? was released officially on 2 March 2012 with a live shindig at Mina’s @ Zwakala, a new arts venue in the forests near Haenertsburg in Limpopo province, South Africa. This grand trans-artistic show featured all the artists who contributed to the publication, including a number of artists recruited from around Limpopo.
