Reinvention is critical to an institution such as ours, as is constant reflection and innovation. And so I am delighted that we are seeing the creative team push those boundaries even further this year — by including a Featured Young Curator, Lerato Bereng, on the Visual Arts programme; by turning the spotlight onto freedom of speech through Satire; and by including a host of productions from not just South Africa but the rest of the continent and the world.
These initiatives all serve to help us view the world through fresh eyes, and to challenge our everyday thinking anew. No less important to the sustainability of the arts is the contribution of our sponsors.
And so we are especially grateful to Standard Bank who, this year, have renewed their commitment to the Festival by entering into a new 3-year contract that will see them support us through until the end of And that leaves nothing for you, our audience, to do apart from launching yourself into this feast and having an amazing time with us.

Madiba, as he was affectionately known, was passionate about the arts.
We rejoice in being both custodians and advocates of his legacy. We are grateful to the many musicians who continue to keep his legacy alive through the songs that they compose. We are inspired by the poets, dramatists and writers who craft their stories drawing from the ethos that Madiba advocated.
We are moved by the diverse forms of creativity and cultural expressions that give young audiences a sense of hope. After all, it is the future of young people that was often at the heart of why Madiba never gave up on his struggle. The Festival takes place against the background of celebrations of twenty-one years of democracy, and sixty years of The Freedom Charter.
It is true that this Festival has opened the doors of education and culture to all South Africans. As you gather at the Festival in Grahamstown, I also urge you to consider experiencing the richness and cultural diversity that makes the Eastern Cape a truly unique province.
I take this opportunity to thank the National Arts Festival for driving a dynamic programme that contributes to the local economic development and the Provincial Growth and Development Strategy which assists to combat poverty and to stimulate the economic growth in the Province of the Eastern Cape.
It plays a vital role in the artistic life of our country while also providing a vibrant meeting point for African and global artistic communities to come together and share their talent.
Rooted in Africa, Standard Bank has made a firm commitment to continue its support and make a difference. Important, too, is that Standard Bank places great value in being in a position, created by the Festival, to support and stimulate the economy of the greater Grahamstown area and of the Eastern Cape Province.
On behalf of Standard Bank, we would like to thank everyone involved in making the Festival the success it is. We pride ourselves on providing opportunities for South African artists to take creative risks in expressing themselves with integrity about matters that concern them.
We recognise the arts as vibrant forces for advocacy and for challenging the conscience of our nation; and we firmly believe that the arts play a significant role in healing the wounds of our country and building a more cohesive society.
These awards underline our passion for celebrating clear new voices and talents in our country. We wish these artists well with their productions, and are confident that you, our audiences, will be challenged, delighted and inspired by them. The limits of free expression in South Africa are being tested.
Our satiric artists, who reflect our society in a glittering mirror, need the support of a platform such as the National Arts Festival more than ever.
As always, two of our top prioirities are the presentation of excellent South African productions and the fostering of international collaborations.
Whilst we retain our long held partnerships with companies and festivals in Europe, our relationships with other countries on the African continent and with Latin America are expanding.
We continue to engage with visiting international artistic directors and producers who have embraced the Festival as a market for scouting South African creative excellence.
