The theme of ocean rejuvenation and conservation takes center stage this year Wavescape Surf and Ocean Festivalwhich takes place for 11 consecutive days from March 1 to 11, 2022 in Cape Town.

The 19th edition of the event features a diverse lineup of ocean-focused events including film screenings, talks, art exhibits, community uplifting initiatives, a photography contest and more again.

The film festival component includes five days of film screenings at four venues – the Shred in Paarden Eiland, the Labia Theater in town, the Galileo in Kirstenbosch and one in Kommetjie.

For art lovers, there’s the Artboard Project, where handcrafted surfboards are the canvas of SA’s top artists that are displayed and auctioned off for different beneficiaries.

There are a lot of people who are for the ocean. As long as we continue to educate our children about this…I’m still hopeful about this.

British singer-songwriter Sarah Jayne Morris is in Cape Town for a performance at Harrington Cocktail Bar Sunday evening.

Morris is an internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter with fifteen solo albums since establishing herself as a lead singer in the 1980s with bands such as The Republic, Happy End and The Communards.

Do not leave me like this was a worldwide success in 1986, in which she made a duet with Jimmy Somerville.

The Sisterhood is his latest project. A dozen singer-songwriters have influenced her the most: Bessie Smith, Billie Holliday, Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Ricky Lee Jones, Annie Lennox and Kate Bush. .

The show starts at 6:00 p.m. and tickets from R300 are available at Quick.
