Barclays Bank Botswana Sponsors 2017 Kuru Dance Festival

Barclays Bank of Botswana is supporting the celebration and preservation of
Botswana’s arts and culture.  For the third consecutive year, the Bank is
sponsoring the Kuru Dance Festival 2017 with a P300,000 contribution to the
Kuru Development Trust, in the presence of Kuru Trust members and the media.

The Kuru Dance Festival is taking place from 4-5 August 2017 with the main
event taking place Saturday, 4 August 2017, at Dqae Qare Lodge in D’Kar,
which is approximately 20km from Ghanzi. The festival marks and seeks to
commemorate the full moon, which is significant in the culture of the San,
believing that during this period they are able to heal the sick through
the power they receive from song and dance.

“It continues to be a great pleasure to partner with Kuru Development Trust
for this initiative.  The annual celebration has evidently become a
renowned one in the Botswana calendar, and has continued to draw the
attention of local and international crowds. The Festival is significant
because it draws on the participation of communities from a variety of
ethnic groups in our Botswana culture and attracts business to the Dqae and
wider Ghanzi area,” said Reinette van der Merwe, Managing Director of
Barclays Bank of Botswana.

In 2016, the festival was officially included in the National Event Calendar, indicating its increasing popularity and renowned standing. This year, Kuru Dance Festival has enriched the diversity of its artist line-up to include 12 San Traditional dance groups, 5 non-San Dance groups and 3 International guest groups.

The 2017 festival will also exhibit stalls for cultural products,
including Veld fruits, craft work and more.

“Our sponsorship of the Festival aligns perfectly with our strategic
ambition to foster growth as a business and in communities. We support the
conservation of our dynamic heritage, as it encourages community trade and
can ultimately drive development. We look forward to engaging our
stakeholders in the beautiful and historic Ghanzi district during the
coming festival,” Van Der Merwe concluded.
