On behalf of the FynArts team, it is my great pleasure to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to all who contributed to the success of, and new benchmark figures for, FynArts 2019.
More than 400 South African artists, presenters and performers were invited to participate in the programme of more than 150 items this year. The festival was truly a bumper fusion of our unique brand of arts festival and winter school as witnessed by the record number of ticket sales.
Thank you to the participating local galleries, restaurants and accommodation establishments for supporting the festival and for going out of your way to meet the tastes and needs of FynArts goers. Our gratitude also to the Overstrand Municipality, other community stakeholders, numerous dedicated committees, Friends of FynArts, volunteers, and staff for making FynArts the success that it was.
The local media has excelled in reporting on our programme and for keeping readers in Hermanus and beyond, informed and up to date. And, of course, without the support of our sponsors there would not have been a FynArts 2019. A full list of sponsors and Friends of FynArts is on the website at hermanusfynarts.co.za. We are deeply grateful to all of you for making it possible for us to present the Festival this year.
You might be pleased to know that we are already at work planning for a FynArts 2020 programme that will surpass the one of this year.
We welcome your comments on FynArts 2019 and suggestions for next year’s festival. Please forward these to me at email@example.com.
Warm FynArts greetings,
