Artombo was also present at the 1st HEdIS Summer School. Artombo is a cultural project which offers art workshops for children and young people from communities surrounding Port Elizabeth. It aimed at providing high quality art classes to learners who would otherwise not have the opportunity. In addition to art skills, they learners are taught various life skills through the process.
