Arts and culture

Africa's history is steeped in a rich variety of music, literature, theatre and arts. In addition to our wide range of world-class academic offerings, we place great importance on the celebration and promotion of our African arts and culture, in all its manifestations.

We have a proud music tradition and heritage. The Unisa Music Foundation organises and presents national and international music competitions, concerts, master classes and music tuition projects. Our Directorate Music on the other hand, works on developing people who can contribute positively to the standard of music, both nationally and internationally. The annual Unisa international jazz school promotes the education of music students and teachers in the art of jazz.

In addition to these, we also have various other arts and culture endeavours. If you’re visiting, why not take in a concert, wander through our anthropology museum or Unisa Space Art Gallery, or check out our Little Theatre?
