The KKNK’s Youth Arts Festival shows us that we can also stand here if we work hard. And that if we can dream it, we can make our dreams a reality.

We can’t thank you enough for the opportunity that the KKNK Youth Arts Festival presented to us. Our children have learnt so much and had a lot of fun (and made a lot of new friends!). We look forward to attending the KKNK in 2024!

This initiative by the KKNK ensures that learners are exposed to high-quality experiences in the arts, which strengthen teaching and learning in the classroom. By exposing the youth to the arts, young audiences are cultivated who will not only respond to the future artistic and socio-economic needs of our province, but also the rest of South Africa.
