An exhibit of The Little Artists’ art at the Deutsche Bank Casalinga Capers Day brought much interest and sales benefiting the Little Artists programme.
Deutsche Bank’s support for the Little Artist Project in South Africa was recognised the 12th Business Arts South Africa Awards under the category Long-Term Development of the Arts. The awards, which were presented by South Africa’s Minister of Arts and Culture Lulu Xingwana on August 31st at the Turbine Hall in Newtown, are considered South Africa’s most prestigious business-arts awards. “Our business at Business and Arts South Africa is connecting diverse business and art projects and highlighting the value for all”, said Business and Arts South Africa CEO, Michelle Constant.

The outcome of the programme is that young people, many who are orphaned, have found meaning and expression in participating in the programme
