LOCAL OUTREACH AND INNER CITY YOUTH PROJECTS

local

FATC is committed to establishing and nurturing partnerships and collaborations with youth-based projects in the inner city and the Greater Johannesburg area. It has run programmes with multiple youth-based groups across the Greater Johannesburg area as a way of contributing to the improved quality of arts education for these young people and as a way of contributing to the development of the communities that they come from. FATC has worked with groups from Hillbrow, Ennerdale, Thembisa, Shoshanguve and Eldorado Park. Through the 2015 My Body My Space Festival FATC extended its reach to working with groups from Daveyton, Katlehong, Thokoza and Wattville in Ekurhuleni.

FATC is furthermore committed to creating platforms for the showcasing of work created with these projects. It maintains an ongoing relationship with these projects through continued mentorship and inclusion in FATC activities. These projects receive free tickets to all of FATC’s performances.
