Live Lit on the MAP

There's a gigantic arts festival on this weekend to celebrate the opening of MAP, a  arts-and-culture space/community incorporating gallery and theatre space located in the Solaris Dutamas development. All kinds of happenings are planned including, art, performance and music. And there are plenty of literary events, among them Poetry Underground, and readings organised by Bernice Chauly to celebrate Earth Hour (8.30-9.30 pm Saturday).  Do go check out the programme for details and also the Festival's Facebook page.

When I heard about it a few days back  my reaction of course was "Oh S**t!" because my own event runs on Saturday afternoon and of course quite a few of the regulars are involved and, of course, deserve support.   I really didn't know this was on the horizon when I organised things! But one doesn't go back on promises, so yes, we're on for Saturday even if we don't have the biggest audience.

And since I can't make it to the MAP Festival on Saturday, I will hope to pop along for Sunday's events and check out this exciting space.

Wow, it's great to see so much happening on the arts and culture scene that a culture vulture might be double booked! Wish I was there
