Cape Town – It has been Marlene le Roux’s life’s mission to transform the Artscape Theatre Centre into an inclusive and accessible environment and this week she was honoured for her contribution.
Le Roux, who is the Artscape’s chief executive, was recently invited to speak on a panel at the two-day SA Brand Summit in Joburg about getting more investors to commit to arts and culture funding within the country.
On Thursday night she was given the Influencer of Influencers award at the summit, which came as a shock to her.
“It was totally a surprise and I was not expecting it at all. I had gone up to learn from people about how to get more investors into South Africa and to talk on a panel.
“The purpose of my visit was to make South Africa a better brand for arts and culture.”
