Arts and Culture Minister, Mr Nathi Mthethwa, invites members of the media to the launch of the Living Legends Legacy Project on Tuesday, 25 August 2015 at Cedar Woods Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg. This legacy project seeks to promote nation building and social cohesion as well as enhancing the sharing of skills, knowledge and experience.

The Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) conceptualised the Living Legends Legacy Programme to recognise the role played by Living Legends across all disciplines within the Arts, Culture and Heritage Sector as part of the implementation of heritage initiative. The aim of the programme is to identify Living Legends across all arts disciplines and engage them actively in programmes that promote arts. This will also allow them to document and archive their own and other works, in this way enriching the telling of the south African story and engaging with young generations.

The launch will be attended by well-known legends in the sector which include amongst others: Letta Mbulu; Abigail Kubheka; Caiphus Semenya; Thandi Klaasen; Don Mattera; Joe Mafela; Dorothy Masuka; Fred Hageman; Babsy Mlangeni; James Mathews; Prof Pitika Ntuli; amongst other great veterans in the sector.
