Veteran Eastern Cape actor and the grandfather of South Africa theatre, Dr John Kani, delivered a lecture about the role of the arts in South African education in the 2013 Think!Fest lecture series. He said that there were no art schools in South Africa that can teach learners art from primary school to high school. He said that there was a need for the creation of spaces where citizens can debate issues that relate to democracy.
