What is the National Eisteddfod of South Africa?

The National Eisteddfod Academy (NEA), a registered Non Profit Company, has combined the magic of the arts and the basic human desire for esteem and recognition to develop the traditional eisteddfod into a powerful tool that supports the personal growth of participants.


How can one participate in the National Eisteddfod of South Africa? 

The first step is to register ONLINE, either as a school or as an individual.


Who can participate in the National Eisteddfod of South Africa?

It is not only the very talented performer that would derive value from this program. All participants will benefit from participating in this process due to the impact of arts activities on personal development and growth. 

An important consideration in any project that eventually seeks to develop interest in the arts, is that this process should start at a young age. Someone that grew up without any interaction or exposure to this is very unlikely to value and appreciate arts in adulthood.
