School of Arts alumnus Ms Thabile Buthelezi has been nominated for Community Builder of the Year in the 2020 Sebenza Women Awards. The Awards honour women who possess innovation, entrepreneurial drive, selfless leadership, individuality and tenacity and who present as role models for other women and society.
‘All I wanted was to change the world one person at a time. My vision is never to serve the masses but to serve individuals through social transformational initiatives in the hope of encouraging them to serve others,’ said Buthelezi. ‘The greatest reward is seeing people taking charge of their lives through the expanded work I do with the Thabile Buthelezi Foundation and other endeavours, however, such nominations and awards come with so much gratitude as it means that others see your contribution towards the betterment of humanity.’

Buthelezi will also be hosting a three-day Woke Queen Arts Festival that celebrates women in the arts and their contributions in the creative economy. The festival will run from 28-30 August at a cost of R450 per person.
