Boschendal is celebrating exceptional South African women this Women’s Day with a day filled with art tours, panel discussions, laughing yoga and a mini-market offering some much-needed retail therapy.
The Boschendal Women’s Month Celebration will take place on Saturday 13 August from 10am-2pm and will be a celebration of women who, despite working in distinctly different industries, all share a common thread of doing good, living consciously, and acting with bravery.
Tamara Bright Patel, Chief Marketing Officer at Boschendal, says: “South Africa is home to some of the most exceptional and courageous women in the world. This year, we want to celebrate the impact women make in their communities and how their positive actions shape the world around us for the better. We’ll also enjoy the lighter side of life with a bit of shopping, an interactive ‘laughing yoga’ session hosted by one of our esteemed guests, and a guided tour through our latest art exhibitions at the Boschendal Norval Foundation Art Gallery.”
Community activist, foodie and laughing yoga practitioner Kimon Bisongo will host a panel of exceptional women as they explore the many ways in which women make a positive impact in their communities and the world at large. Panel members include Ncumisa Mkabile, a young regenerative farmer and UNICEF ambassador from Khayelitsha; Natasha Liesner, co-founder of popular fashion rental outlet Style Rotate; Rukaya Mansoor, head of research and development at SKOON; and Boschendal’s award-winning female winemakers Danielle Coetsee and Andiswa Mapheleba.
Style Rotate and Skoon will also have some of their must-have fashion and beauty products on display, and Boschendal will showcase some of the top locally sourced products from its omnichannel store.
The event will take place at Boschendal’s Olive Room, with light snacks and bubbles served. Prior to the event, guests will be treated to a guided tour of the Vessel and Horizons art exhibitions at the Manor House Gallery, which forms part of Boschendal’s ongoing partnership with the Norval Foundation.
