‘Inyathi’, A Journal on Arts launched

With John Steele, Walter Sisulu UniversityMr. Billy Nel launching the first arts journal, InyathiThe launch of the Inaugural edition of Inyathi on the 9 November went successfully at the Ann Bryants Gallery, East London.. The journal, first of its kind in Eastern Cape was unveiled by the Hon. Minister of Finance, Mr. Billy Nel. Mr. Nel is an avid art collector; his home has art and artefacts from around the globe. He is well known for his huge collection of motor cycles dating back to forties and an airplane which he has converted into a lovely restaurant.

Inyathi is a Journal on Arts which publishes academic and research oriented articles on Art and Art related subjects. It focuses on the rich heritage of Eastern Cape, its art and artists, bringing them all together for the first time in Inyathi. The journal is endorsed by the Minister of Art and Culture, M/s Abraham Noxolo and the Minister of Finance, Mr. Billy Nel. Mr. Nel in his inaugural address stressed on the need of bringing art from remote townships and providing a platform for such artists in Inyathi. He promised sponsorship from the Department of Finance and the Department of Art and Culture so that the journal may continue to be published with colour interiors. The journal is published by ‘The Poets Printery’ which is also involved in the publishing of ‘A Hudson View’, a quarterly international print poetry journal. The journal is priced at R 55 / USD 8.50 postage extra. I would like to set up distribution points in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Please send your articles for publication to me for the next issue of Inyathi.
