Get Ready For RedFest 2022!

This year, the annual RedFest will see Redhill School’s grounds used completely, offering guests and art lovers with a massive outdoor music festival. This event includes a wide variety of theatre productions; carefully curated art exhibitions; a magical children’s entertainment area to keep the little ones busy; an outdoor farmer’s market and an indoor coffee shop perfect for a breather between shows. The aim of this festival is to offer something for the entire family to enjoy.

According to Joseph Gerassi, Executive Head at Redhill School, this year’s arts festival has a far more important role to play than in previous years.

The Joburg community is only just beginning to emerge from two years of lockdown, restrictions, and chances to connect, not to mention a scarcity of opportunities to enjoy and celebrate the arts,” he says. “The Redhill Arts Festival aims to deliver on both fronts. Families and friends can get together to make some much-needed memories, while also enjoying some of the finest dramatic productions and musical performances that South Africa has to offer.

The Redhill Arts Festival has became known as THE place to celebrate and enjoy the arts. Every year, the festival has continued to attract a variety of up-and-coming artists and performers, while also showcasing some of South Africa’s finest artists and talent.

2022 will be our biggest Redhill Arts Festival to date,” explains Gerassi. “Not only are we hoping to provide the wider Joburg community with an event unlike anything else that they have experienced in Gauteng, but any surplus funds raised will be used to broaden the scope of next year’s event, reach an even wider audience, and ensure that all artists are paid generously for the many months of work that go into each production.

Redhill’s student-led media company – RedMedia – will be covering #Redfest2022 both before and during the event. RedMedia, comprising of RedRadio, the school’s 24/7 radio station and RMP; and the school’s film studio, have already begun rolling out an extensive media campaign to amplify the Redhill Arts Festival to other schools.

One of our key offerings at Redhill School is offering our students real-world experience,” explains Gerassi. “We strongly believe that not all learning takes place in the classroom, but that opportunities to discover, grow and develop their intrinsic skills and passions can prove invaluable once they have graduated from the school. RedMedia is just one of the many real-world experiences we offer students, and continue to be blown away by the value and insight they bring to the hosting of a community-wide arts festival.
