The Child Art project is one of South Africa’s oldest social investments projects and was started in 1963 to develop the notion that art is a valuable aspect of human development. Although the project is aimed at promoting a love of art among youth, it also provides them with an opportunity to express thoughts and ideas creatively.
Tersia Mdunge, corporate social investment manager, says the uniqueness and creativity astounds her every year.
Through the years the Santam project has developed into a nationally recognised initiative that now incorporates a national art competition, an online exhibition of selected artworks, an art calendar, as well as informal art centres at schools around the country. In an active effort to fulfil the need for art education in disadvantaged communities, Santam has joined forces with the Ibhabhathane Project to present arts and culture teacher workshops. We also offer free art classes to children from these communities.
