We will be hosting a VERY SPECIAL evening for ESHOWE to showcase the art and music that we are taking to THE NATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL in Makhanda (Grahamstown).

It’s going to be AMAZING!

It’s Really HAPPENING!!!

The Zululand Cartel is a small tribe of creatives living in Eshowe, Zululand. A proper mishmash of artists, writers, performers, songwriters, vagabonds and storytellers. We have recently been accepted to participate in the Fringe Festival at the South African National Arts Festival in Makhanda.

However, it costs quite a lot of money to go to the festival. “Oh no!” We hear you cry!
Luckily we are innovative, optimistic, enthusiastic souls with wild imaginations. So give us a hand (not the applause kind!)…
Buy a ticket to our Pre-Festival Festival on Friday the 31st of May!
All monies raised will go towards travel, accommodation, venue hire, and exhibition expenses.
This really is an incredible, once in a lifetime career opportunity to present our creative work at the South African National Arts Festival…
But we want to share it with YOU first!
