“As part of the provincial government’s ongoing effort to grow the arts and creative sector, the two sister departments have organised this three-day event, essentially, to enhance knowledge of our locally-based artists using fashion as a medium of communication,” MEC for Sport, Arts and Culture, Onicca Moloi added.
