The MBDA is spent over R3 million on renovations to the Athenaeum Building and Little Theatre on Belmont Terrace, converting it back to its former glory with the aim to develop an arts and crafts precinct and that the premises will be used 7 days a week, attracting residents and tourists to it and to the surrounding areas.

At present the Athenaeum is a buzz with a number of stage productions and conferences hosted from the Little Theatre as well as art exhibitions, weddings, spoken word and poetic events, launches, workshops and the list goes on.

There is also a coffee shop where visitors, employees from the local businesses in the nearby and surrounding areas as well as the just moved in NMMU School of Music, Arts and Design are able to enjoy.
