The meaning of life is to find your gift.

The purpose of life is to give it away.

– William Shakespeare –

By Harrismith Eisteddfod is dit die kern van ons fees.  Hier skep ons vir almal die geleentheid om hulle Godgegewe talente met ander te deel.  Soms kruip hierdie talente weg, maar met die regte aanmoediging kan dit na vore kom. Kunste praat waar woorde nie kan verduidelik nie … Oos Vrystaat, ons is gereed om te luister!

Danksy Isak Badenhorst van Harrismith Atlantic het ons hierdie jaar ‘n splinternuwe aanlyn inskrywingsisteem gebruik.  Ons bied 2648 items aan en toon ‘n 6% groei met ‘n nuwe rekord getal van 5776 deelnemers.  Die grootste groei van 58% is te bespeur in die Dans Afdeling, met 19% in die Instrumentaal Afdeling, 14% in die Vokaal Afdeling en 12% in die Afrikaans Spraak en Drama Afdeling.

Kom deel gerus in hierdie propvol week van kunste!

This is the essence of Harrismith Eisteddfod, an art festival where it is all about creating the opportunity for everybody to share their God given talents with others.  Sometimes it’s hidden, but sometimes it just needs a little inspiration or a word of encouragement to surface.  Art speaks where words are unable to explain…Eastern Free State we are ready to listen!
