We wish to honour the Chairperson of our Board of Trustees, Dr Marlene Le Roux on receiving the Fair Saturday Foundation Award in Spain for her work in the Arts, with youth and with people with disabilities. Her lecture was entitled: Is it possible to move from dehumanisation to hope through the arts in a post-apartheid society?

Dr le Roux is the first South African and first disabled recipient of the Award. According to the Fair Saturday Newsletter, the award aims to acknowledge, in particular, “the courage and determination shown by le Roux as an advocate for human rights, inclusion and openness throughout her professional career, including her role as CEO of Artscape, the work she does as disability activist, youth development and women and gender empowerment.”

Thank you Dr Le Roux for all you do to transform our country into a more humane space based on social justice.

The CEO Says…

What a year it has been for the Chrysalis Academy, its staff and students! From one of our graduates spending almost two months in London on a film course to the raging fires in and around the Tokai mountains in March 2015 and much, much more. However, I am pleased to say that we took everything in our stride! That is the foundation of our work – having an open heart to experience what each moment brings.
