Women’s Month Expo 2012

August 25th is when you’ll see us next. Co-Ordinator Luyanda Peter has called us in to curate the sound at an exhibition held by Anelisa Mangcu and Yang Zhao in support of Women’s Month, which is a great opportunity for all involved to raise  awareness, give back to charity and appreciate art, music and people while paying homage all at once, which makes us feel a lot more philanthropic about our Friday nights about town…

So the exhibit has a strictly female theme, and submissions from the likes of Max Mogale, Mpumelelo Macu, Danielle Clough and other such talented phenoms have offered to submit their selected artworks, from which a chosen few will exhibit on the day. Look — They even have a blog: http://womensmonth.tumblr.com/ on which all the submissions will be shown. Speaking of which, submissions are still open, so don’t be shy, contact Anelisa or Yang at womensmonthexpocpt@gmail.com if you feel your work deserves a place in this exhibit. They do however, close  on the 17th, so don’t sleep on this wonderful opportunity!
