The CCC hosts another of its popular cultural programmes on Friday 29 November under the theme Break the Chains.
An amazing line-up has been put together that includes the ever-rising Rosa Choir, blues guitarist Elton Goslett, duo Didi and Jules, vocalist Thami Baba, the versatile Odwa Bongo and poets Diana Ferrus and Vusumuzi Mpofu.

The programme takes place at the Slave Church Museum, 40 Long Street, Cape Town and starts at 7pm. Refreshments will be on sale and entrance is free. Donations are welcome.
The programme as well as a planned human rights workshop are funded by the Foundation for Human Rights and is part of the Community Voices for Human Rights series that the CCC has hosted in 2018 and 2019.

“The theme fits in with our broader objectives of promoting social justice through arts and culture,” said CCC Steering Committee member June Knight.
For most of its 12-year existence, the CCC has done monthly cultural programmes at historic venues in the centre of town.
“For the last two years, we shifted to communities and theatres for cultural programmes, big productions and focused on our various choirs,” said Steering Committee member Elizabeth Schutter.
“Many of our supporters have suggested we include the monthly programmes into our schedule once again and so Friday night’s programme is both a response to those requests and a return to a part of our roots,” said Schutter.

The CCC is a diverse cultural group that promotes social change through arts and culture. It has run some very successful projects over 12 years including monthly cultural programmes, a poetry anthology, the celebrated Rosa Choir and a poetry production Uhadi, that was performed at the Paris Autumn Festival in 2013. The CCC launched a junior choir at the end of 2015 and one more choir since. The CCC has been involved in several big theatre productions in recent years.
