The Keleketla Library at the Drill Hall, Johannesburg, was the venue for a workshop with Arts and Culture teachers from Ekhureleni. These teachers were doing a course on teaching arts and culture with the Education Department of the University of the Witwatersrand under lecturer Theresa Giorza. Jane Lane of the Constitutional Court Art Trust and Betsi Pendry of the Living Together Institute brought all the parties together.
Tumelo Mokopakgosi and Ezekiel Budeli were the guest artists, assisted by Athi Mongozeleli Joja and Michael Mahlangu. Charles Nkosi gave an inspiring introductory talk.
The approach was to give teachers the opportunity to make a piece of art so that they could experience making art themselves before teaching others.
They were also shown how to use found objects in order to be able to repeat the experience in class without having to purchase art materials. Teachers (two in each group) were encouraged to come up with their own concepts, which they explained after the completion of the art work.
