Albie Sachs Honoured with ACT Lifetime Achievement Award

Congratulations to PEN SA member and former Constitutional Court Justice Albie Sachs who has been honoured by the Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Arts Advocacy.

Lifetime Achievement Awards were also given to Dr Mongane Wally Serote for Literature, Pieter-Dirk Uys for Theatre, Johnny Clegg for Music, Penny Siopis for Visual Art and Johaar Mosaval for Dance.

ACT CEO Pieter Jacobs said: “Our list of South African icons would not be complete without entering the names of these remarkable individuals alongside the likes of Miriam Makeba, Nadine Gordimer and Dr John Kani, to mention a few.”

“Their exemplary careers have enriched the arts and culture industry significantly, leaving a legacy that inspires young artists, such as the ImpACT Award recipients, to strive to reach a high level of excellence in their chosen fields,” Jacobs continued.
