After its debut in June 2005, Curious Culture enjoyed an unbroken 5-season run as SABC’s premier arts & culture magazine show. Presented in English, Sotho and Afrikaans, the show covered an eclectic mix of fine art, dance, music, acting, literature, theatre and photography. Hosted by Jerry Mofokeng, Jolene Martin & Shelley Meskin, Curious Culture proudly brought the world of arts & culture to national attention.
Having demonstrated the local appetite for arts & culture through “Curious Culture”, a new magazine called “Artcha” was developed by Engage Entertainment in late 2007. With a completely new format, Artcha made its debut on SABC 2 in 2008. Featuring the ‘Artcha Angels’, Anel Alexander, Eloise Cupido & Masello Motana (Season’s 1& 2) and Mmabatho Monthsho (Season 3), the show positioned itself as the hottest art show in South Africa. Looking to put a more glamorous spin on the arts, the show found itself at glamorous opening nights, but also looked to provide a discerning viewpoint, thanks in no-small part to the insightful voice of Barry Ronge.
