Tshwane School of Music like many other Community Arts Centres operates under very difficult conditions and resources are always insufficient for them to fully discharge their role in communities.

“The financial support forms part of the Department of Arts and Culture’s commitment to support and enhance programmes in Community Arts Centres in the current MTSF. We understand that programming and efficient Management of Community Arts Centres is key to the sustainability of these facilities,” said Deputy Minister Mabudafhasi.

The journey started last year when the Deputy Minister accompanied Mafikizolo to the school during the launch of Mafikizolo Reunited Tour. The Deputy Minister then adopted the school as a special project. Hence the school requested financial support to cover its operations.
