The Mafukuzela Arts Session is a talent workshop established by learners from Ohlange High School. Every Saturday afternoon, up to 100 youths from the area come together in the school library to perform music, poetry, dancing and other artistic expressions. As Siyathemba Makhoba, one of the founding members explains, learners were inspired by the community outreach initiatives run by students and staff from the Cultural and Heritage Tourism Programme at UKZN, especially the ‘Tourism Club’ and the ‘Mafukuzela Development Initiative’. Some of the learners indeed have much talent and have performed at community functions and for tourists.
