Set on the slopes above Inanda Dam Wushwini Pan African Centre provides access to the Performing and Visual Arts for the rural community living in the heart of the Valley of 1000 Hills, just outside of Durban.
Jerry Pooe, visionary of Wushwini and Founder of Eager Artists shares his 20 years of performance art experience to nurture talent and develop collaborations across South African, Pan-African and International cultures.
Wushwini’s whole philosophy is based on the spirit of Ubuntu, part of the Zulu phrase “Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu”, which literally means that a person is a person through other people.
Ubuntu has its roots in humanist African philosophy, where the idea of community is one of the building blocks of society, and Wushwini, being built on solid rock certainly has a firm foundation from which to grow the talent of the area and forge new links with artists from all over the world.
