The diamond miner announced this week it is supporting the start of an art school in the mining town as part of the guided process to transform it into a sustainable community. The Oranjemund Art School is located at the Debmarine Namdeb Foundation. It will take in 20 new art students under the tuition and guidance of Sieberhagen. The school will form a nucleus for Arts and Culture as part of town transformation, to impart artistic skills to Oranjemund children and adult residents through art classes held twice a week on Mondays and Tuesdays. The first enrolment has 20 students. It is hoped that by enhancing artistic skills, it will contribute to develop tourism as a catalyst for the town’s long-term sustainability.
