With this virtual event, we begin to commemorate Cornerstone Institute’s fifty years of existence and hope that you will join us on this momentous evening.
Jevron Epstein, our COO, will be your host for the evening, with guest appearances from our Registrar, Crystal Jannecke, and Omar Valley who so graciously donated some of the Art which will be auctioned off in support of the Learning Center and Cornerstone’s CSI initiatives.
Performances will be done by proudly South African artists, Deslynn Malotana and Hope Netshivhambe.
Deslynn was recently named one of Red Bull’s trailblazers in local music and the success of her music has seen her make guest appearances on TV and radio across the country, as well as performing on stages for national delegates, music festivals and bespoke lounges. The upcoming performance by this urban-soul songstress, will have audiences in a wave of emotion, as she goes from relaxed sounds to up tempo numbers, singing a mix of both popular local numbers and a few originals.
Hope Netshivhambe is an esteemed storyteller and spoken-word artist hailing from Venda, South Africa. She’s one of the most recent winners of the Tshwane Speak Out Loud poetry competition, where she also reached the slam finals in 2016, 2017 and 2019. She’s part of an ongoing production about gender-based violence called #WEAREDYINGHERE, which debuted at the Arts Cape and has performed for audiences both locally and internationally. Hope will be doing readings on South Africa’s heritage in English and the vernac.
Virtual attendees are encouraged to bid on the art pieces via a private bidding page on the Cornerstone website, which will be launching on 3 September and be open for the entirety of Heritage Month.
