As the season winds down The Old Mutual Summer Sunset concert on Sunday March 24 at Kirstenbosch brings two popular groups to the stage and the promise of a rock ‘n roll afternoon. Shadowclub brings a rootsy, bluesy rock to the stage. Inspired by classic rock acts, they are about powerful songs performed with passion. Keeping it simple, the trio, consisting of Jacques Moolman, Isaac Klawansky and Louis Fourie belt out short, fast, banging tracks that are fun to play and easy for a crowd to connect with. Considered a band that exemplifies rock ‘n roll this is a group that has a great future and enormous appeal to all ages. Gangs of Ballet will be opening the concert. The four band members, Brad Klynsmith, Jonathan Rich, Hardus de Beer and Josh Klynsmith, have combined their various individual tastes and styles to create a sound that is captivatingly fresh. Their music cannot be pinned down to any specific genre but rather experiments with an eclectic mix of alternative, melodic, anthemic, electronic and dance. Get your dancing shoes on and celebrate summer at this next concert. Pack a picnic, gather your friends and family and enjoy the backdrop of the most magnificent garden in Africa as the music rocks on.

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA. 18 February, 2013. Indigo Properties, which owns the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, one of the most creative and commercially successful hubs in the country, has transformed the 6-storey high old silo on the property into a state of the art design space, which is home to the Cape Town Creative Academy (CTCA) - a perfect fit with Cape Town’s designation as World Design Capital (WDC) in 2014. The Cape Town Creative Academy (CTCA) occupies five floors and will offer degree courses in interaction design, audiovisual studies or communication design. “We’re taking the creative domain out of the playground and placing it on a professional level,” says Francisca Gebert, chief executive officer of CTCA. “It’s all about ‘design thinking’, in which science and art come together and we think beyond prettiness, to functionality, sustainability and usefulness.” That vision fits in perfectly with Cape Town’s WDC title, given to cities dedicated to using design for social, cultural and economic development. And also in keeping with this, the Old Biscuit Mill has had a major upliftment effect on Albert Road, Woodstock, with new businesses opening all the time, says Barry Harlen, director of Indigo. But Indigo had always had its eye on the old grain storage silo standing on the property, and two years ago plans were approved to develop it. “We’re keen to keep as much of its heritage value as possible,” says Harlen. Heritage is clearly important to the company, as it also restored Victorian buildings in Upper Long Street in the city, leading to the rejuvenation of the area. Indigo owns most of the buildings there. But tackling a silo is a whole new thing and Harlen explains that they had to think very carefully about how to let light at the same time as keeping the integrity of the structure. “The building is windowless now, of course, and from our courtyards we’ll have small windows so as to preserve the look as much as possible.

If you have started 2013 in the need for some motivation, you need look no further. Glen McQuirk, founder of Map4Life will be helping people find their purpose in life in a series of meetings to be held in Bellville from Thursday 24 January to Saturday 26 January. The Map4Life programme has been likened to a support group, but it is more accurately described as a purpose club that now has members in 75 countries, and encompasses the skills of coaches, authors, motivational speakers and trainers. Map4Life allows people to do more than dream about their purpose in life. It gives them the tools to turn those dreams into reality. The first thing it does is to actually answer the question so many of us ask ‘what am I doing here’. There are a series of meetings on offer, from the FastTrack sessions on Thursday 24, a motivational talk on ‘Pursuing your Purpose’ on Thursday evening, a workshop on Friday 25 to show you how to really get out of debt and generate wealth and a motivational talk on leadership with breakfast on Saturday 26th in the morning. There is no charge for the motivational talk on Thursday January 24. For the other three events, the organisers are giving away one free spot for each event. To stand a chance of winning, call Debbie at 021 975 5409 and quote the key phrase “I want to pursue my purpose with passion”. Call Debbie at 021 975 5409 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about any of the events. URL: Twitter: Facebook: YouTube: Author: Debbie Debbie from Hippo communications.
