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

The Sibelius High School community is sad to announce the passing of Mr Ronald Gregory Beckett.

Mr Beckett was a former teacher at Sibelius High School for many years before he retired. His love for music and the arts resulted in him composing the Sibelius High School anthem which is part of our ethos.
He will forever be remembered and appreciated for his love for music and his great sense of humour.

We extend our sincere condolences to the Beckett family and wish them strength during this difficult time.

Rest in peace our dear colleague.
