I love my city, in fact there's very few people from Durban that will tell you differently. It's been always said that Durban is melting pot of cultures, but what surprised me is the talent that comes from the various types of people in our city. I generally don't delve into the arts side of things since its not in my interest but you can't help but admire some of the work that's being created by the locals. It's because of this Interpret Durban (#ID5) was created, a platform for creatives to showcase their work and with it not only promote them but the city as well. This year sees the 5th installment of this event and competion with over R90,000 in prizes to be won!
