The KKNK (Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees) takes place in Outdtshoorn from 8-15 April. This ever popular festival boasts a strong Flemish presence this year as the Government of Flanders is supporting a number of events. First up is KRITIEK, a new project launched by Kunste Onbeperk to promote arts journalism. Six writers will participate in a Festival mentorship programme, which includes workshops (6 and 7 April). Flemish art journalist Evelyne Coussens was one of the workshop presenters. The Government of Flanders has also provided the support to bring choreographer Benjamin Vandewalle to the KKNK where he will stage his Walking the LIne, a cross between performance, choreography and installations. Ma tête est mon village (My head is my village) showcases another Flemish choreographer, Jan Wallyn.

In May 2018, the Government of Flanders launched a Call for Proposals entitled: Towards Enhanced Climate Change Adaptation and an Inclusive Adaptive Green Economy in South Africa. Seven projects were selected from this call, all of which look at tackling climate change adaptation challenges in innovative ways and by building on multi-actor partnerships.

One of these projects is Gender CC Southern Africa - Women For Climate Justice Network's Mango Project, supported by Flanders in partnership with the Department of Environmental Affairs. Gender CC aims to build an informed climate resilient movement of Southern African women and men, so as to benefit society as a whole, while at the same time opening up opportunities within the green economy.
