Community Outreach


African Music Project

The African Music Project focuses on music education, research, performance and community development. By advocating that African music occupy a central space in institutions, and by developing strong relations with the communities in which we live, the Project extends the involvement of the Department with artistic life in general and serves as an important vehicle for community reconstruction.


UKUSA Performing Arts Programme is a registered non-profit community arts project that has been operating in KwaZulu-Natal for over twenty years. The vision of UKUSA is to provide equal opportunities to economically disadvantaged people of any age who show natural abilities in the performing arts and display a desire to share with others what they have learned.
