The Olive Branch Project
‘Start where you are, with what you have, and create something new.’
The Olive Branch involves the communities of the Riebeek Valley in performing and visual-arts projects with a view to finding common ground and healing wounds. The initiative also promotes creative entrepreneurship through ongoing skills-transfer programmes which foster and develop the traits that go hand in hand with creative endeavour: determination, honesty, commitment, courage, dedication and the desire to make the world a better place for all.
As part of the Solo Studios experience, the Olive Branch is operating a pop-up space in the centre of Arts Town Riebeek Valley which provides information about the project as well as an informal exhibition and performance space for local community artists and performers.
