TSHISIMANI ARTS FESTIVAL 2022: Democracy for who?

How is it that nearly three decades of democracy can coexist with rampant inequality, rising poverty, corruption, violence and the erosion of ordinary people’s dignity? For the Tshisimani Arts Festival in 2022 four groups from across Cape Town have created original performances that explore resistance to the erosion of democratic rights and imagining what a democracy from below looks like.

Featuring performances from activists from Cissie Gool House & Friends occupation, Sibelius High School and Simonstown High School, and a commissioned script by arts activist Qondiswa James, each piece showcases powerful stories of creative resistance and building democracy for We, the People.

Where: Gugu S’thebe Cultural Centre, Washington Street, Langa
When: Saturday 27 August from 14h30 – 16h00
