Today we spoke with three guests about their upcoming event called Project Art on Saturday 29 July. We were joined in the studio by the organisers of the event as well as one of the artists who will be performing.
Athenkosi Jwili is the Founder of Enkosi Foundation, which uses sport and the creative arts as a tool to rehabilitate youth. The Foundation has indoor and outdoor gyms as well as chess games to keep the youngsters’ minds constantly active. Enkosi Foundation creates fashion shows and musical events to boost, and will be supporting Project Art on Saturday.
One of the artists performing at Project Art goes by the name, Conscious X. He is originally from Johannesburg, but moved to Cape Town because the “energy” drew him to the city. Conscious X has been rapping for over a decade and has been building his brand since 2008. He became involved with Enkosi Foundation so that he could show upcoming artists in the foundation what the journey of an artist can look like. Check out the video clip to see Conscious X riding a beat in studio:
