The Master Class is part of the Living Legends Legacy Programme launched in August 2015 by the Department of Arts and Culture to honour the living legends across all arts disciplines for their contribution in the arts, culture and heritage sector. The initiative is to engage the living legends actively in programmes that promote arts and culture development as well as provide opportunities for interaction and impart skills, knowledge and experience to younger generations of artists.
