History not only tells us where we come from, it also contains valuable lessons. Thus, the process of preserving history through the archive is vitally important. Recognising this, UCT recently launched Humanitec, which saw the digitisation of more than 14 000 objects from the 14 archival collections housed at UCT Libraries. Here is a snapshot of what is available through Humanitec, and in some of these collections.
The 2015 Baxter Dance Festival kicks off with the internationally-acclaimed Nuwe Graskoue Trappers and showcases 74 works on the programme this October.

There are still two Erik Chisholm commemorative lunch-hour concerts to look forward to at the South African College of Music this year. They are the final in a three-part series to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of the Scottish composer, pianist and conductor.
