I learn a very important thing that first you must know your culture first before other cultures, and you must know where you come and where your going in culture. Phaladi S Mmotong

Art correlate with other subjects and working with other people I gained and share ideas. James S Mphahlele

Art categories are more related than I thought. Lerole Dikgale

Its impracticable without other people, I learned that I also learned that art isn’t merely for one, its for general in terms of sociology, physiology etc.  Gidion Mokwena

I have learnt that in most cases we have a lot in common. Gilbert Malotane

I have realised that as much as I am a Fine Artist, other disciplines can merge with my creations because the foundation of coming up with a project from all aspects of art is the same. Khutso Mmethi

I learnt that the languages of arts are the same in all art forms i.e. music, dance, drama, compassion, visual. M.S. Moshapo

It all makes sense.  Working together brings so much fulfillment and a sense of belonging to a group (artists world).  A moment where all different people become one, sharing on vision.  Humbulani Isaac Singo
