The weekend will be filled with art and NGO exhibitions, knowledge-sharing and networking, worship and music and of course a moment for reflection and gratitude during CABSA's AGM.

All events will take place on the premises of Fontainbleau Community Church (were the CARIS office is situated), on the corner Rabie road and Fourth Avenue, Fontainbleau, Randburg.
