Gender justice the focus of Cape Cultural Collective’s human rights-themed programmes

by | Aug 23, 2020 | Events | 0 comments

The Cape Cultural Collective will host two online programmes in the coming weeks focusing on gender justice.

The first, Women Arise, a cultural programme with music, dance and poetry, takes place on Friday 28 August at 7pm and features dancer Darion Adams, singers Thami Baba and Sisanda, poets Vusumzi Mpofu and Khadija Heeger and musician Skye Dladla.

The second programme, on Friday 4 September at 7pm, is a webinar with speaker presentations and audience interaction. Details of speakers and themes will be made available during the week.

While the first programme affirms and celebrates the voices of women in their quest for gender justice, the webinar will unpack the grim reality of the harsh oppression suffered by women and outline some efforts at solutions.

The programmes are part of the Community Voices for Human Rights series, sponsored by the Foundation for Human Rights since 2018. The programmes have included human rights themed community cultural concerts and workshops for young people focusing on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The programmes will be hosted on Zoom and Facebook.

The CCC is in its 13th year of existence and is growing fast, even during the current pandemic. The CCC has three choirs, runs regular cultural programmes, and does theatre productions and human rights projects. During Covid, the CCC has run various food drives in the City to support families of choir members and artists. It has also expanded its resource base, participated in a few online cultural programmes and produced music for a short movie on D6 that premiered in the US last week. The CCCs Rosa Choir holds online practices every Saturday.
