The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) is pleased to announce that the 20th edition of the ACT Awards will be taking place on Friday 17 November 2017 at the Sun International Maslow Hotel in Sandton.
Theme: Celebrating South African legends
The ACT awards have been honouring South African legends, stalwarts and inspirations in the South African arts and culture sector for the last 20 years. The 2017 edition of this event is bound to be more glamourous than ever with special guest and emcee Bridget Masinga from KayaFM and entertainment provided by internationally-acclaimed songstress Lira.
This year, ACT will be awarding five Lifetime Achievement Awards and the ImpACT award winner will be revealed on the evening of the event. The Lifetime Achievement Awards are given to people who have consistently contributed to, sustained, grown and defined the South African arts and culture sector over the course of their lives. Many of them have faced incredible personal, financial and political hardship in order to carry out the work that they do and ACT would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the significant contributions that these people have made. ACT is thrilled to announce the following Lifetime Achievement Award Winners:
