Deutsche Bank Africa Foundation recognised for Long-Term Development of the Arts


Deutsche Bank’s support for the Little Artist Project in South Africa was recognised on Monday night at the 12th Annual Business Day BASA (Business Arts South Africa) Awards under the category Long-Term Development of the Arts. The awards, which were presented by South Africa’s Minister of Arts and Culture Lulu Xingwana at a gala event held at the Turbine Hall in Newtown, are considered South Africa’s most prestigious business-arts awards.

Now 10 years old, the Little Artists School is attended by children from two Hillbrow orphanages and Deutsche Bank’s support has ensured permanent classroom facilities where structured programmes can be implemented. "Our core business at Business and Arts South Africa is connecting diverse business and arts projects and highlighting the value for all," said Business and Arts South Africa CEO, Michelle Constant. Business Day Editor, Peter Bruce, commented: "Arts projects are so often overlooked in the fight for funding on the part of South African businesses, so what is so striking about the winners tonight is just how varied the funding relationship can be." Other guest speakers on the night were celebrated poet, performer, writer and speaker Gcina Mhlope and performer Nkoto Malebye, who hosted the event.
