In support of its commitment to promoting a multilingual, multicultural environment for staff, students, and other stakeholders, the University of the Free State hosted the first Kovsies Multilingual Mokete on the Bloemfontein Campus today.

“The Mokete served as an institutional initiative aimed at promoting a coordinated and inclusive celebration of the regional languages and cultures included in the UFS Language Policy. The university wants everybody to feel that they belong, and that they can be proud of their culture and language. We also want them to know that every person counts; that everyone has a voice and that they can contribute to building a culture which inspires excellence,” says Dr Engela van Staden, Vice-Rector: Academic and Chairperson of the UFS Language Committee.

During the festival, staff and students from all three UFS campuses participating expressed this celebration in the form of visual arts, poetry, storytelling, drama, music, and song in the dominant languages spoken at the UFS, which is English, Afrikaans, Sesotho, isiZulu, and South African Sign Language.

For the duration of the Mokete, the Red Square in front of the Main Building, was renamed  the ‘Mokete Square’. The Scaena Theatre will play host to a visual-arts exhibition, a drama production called Dogg's Hamlet, as well as a screening of The Visitor.

 Well-known performers Early B (pictured) and Simple Stories,(pictured at below) entertained the crowd as the closing acts on the Mokete Main Stage. The student choirs from our South and Qwaqwa Campuses also performed.

There was multicultural food stalls which sold typical cultural cuisine, from sheep’s head and bunny chow to koeksisters.

The KovsieGear stall, sold Multilingual Mokete-branded merchandise, inlcuding a special ‘doek’ to commemorate the Mokete.

According to Dr Van Staden, the UFS is committed to creating a multilingual environment and hopes to make the Kovsies Multilingual Mokete an annual event which will rotate between the three campuses. “We are proud to host an event of this nature and believe that it will be one of the flagship events on the university’s calendar. The Mokete will furthermore present and strengthen the university’s positioning in relation to multilingualism,” says Dr Van Staden.

The Mokete is furthermore presented in support of the ITP’s work streams on Teaching and Learning, Student and Staff Experience, and the Multi-Campus Model.

Ter ondersteuning van sy verbintenis tot die bevordering van ’n veeltalige, multikulturele omgewing vir personeel, studente en ander belanghebbendes, gaan die Universiteit van die Vrystaat die eerste Kovsie Veeltalige Mokete op18 September 2019 op die Bloemfontein-kampus aanbied. 

“Die mokete dien as ’n institusionele inisiatief wat daarop gemik is om ’n gekoördineerde en inklusiewe viering van die streekstale en -kulture wat by die UV-taalbeleid ingesluit is, te bevorder. Die universiteit wil hê almal moet voel dat hulle behoort en dat hulle trots kan wees op hulle kultuur en taal. Ons wil ook hê hulle moet weet dat elke persoon tel; dat almal ’n stem het en dat hulle kan bydra om ’n kultuur te bou wat uitnemendheid inspireer,” sê dr Engela van Staden, Viserektor: Akademies en Voorsitter van die UV se Taalkomitee. 

#IHaveAVoice #KeNaLeLenstoe #EkHetnStem #Nginezwi

Tydens die fees sal personeel en studente van al drie UV-kampusse wat aan die fees deelneem, uiting aan hierdie viering kan gee in die vorm van visuele kuns, poësie, storievertelling, drama, musiek en sang in die dominante tale wat by die UV gepraat word, naamlik Engels, Afrikaans, Suid-Sotho, Zoeloe en Suid-Afrikaanse Gebaretaal. 

Die Rooiplein voor die Hoofgebou sal vir die duur van die mokete herdoop word na die ‘Moketeplein’. Die Scaena-teater sal gasheer wees vir ’n visuele kunsuitstalling, ’n dramaproduksie genaamd Dogg’s Hamlet, asook ’n vertoning van The Visitor. 

Sluit by ons aan en #VuldieMoketePlein saam met die bekende kunstenaars Early B en Simple Stories; hulle sal die skare vermaak as die afsluitingsvertonings op die Mokete-hoofverhoog om 19:00.  Die studentekore van ons Suid- en Qwaqwa-kampus sal ook optree.
 
Daar sal ook multikulturele kosstalletjies wees wat tipiese kulturele disse verkoop – van skaapkop en kerriebrood (bunny chow) tot koeksisters; dit sal kosliefhebbers beslis beïndruk. 

By die KovsieGear-stalletjie sal daar Veeltalige Mokete-handelsmerkartikels beskikbaar wees, asook ’n spesiale doek ter herdenking van die mokete. Maak dus gebruik van die fotokiosk wat by die stalletjie beskikbaar sal wees om jouself in jou beste kulturele drag op film vas te lê.  Daarna kan jy jou foto deur middel van #KovsiesVeeltaligeMokete oplaai en die UV by @UFSWeb op Twitter en @ufs/uv op Instagram merk. Die vyf foto’s met die meeste ‘hou van’ sal ongelooflike pryse ontvang. 

Volgens dr Van Staden is die UV daartoe verbind om ’n veeltalige omgewing te skep en hoop om van die Kovsie Veeltalige Mokete ’n jaarlikse geleentheid te maak wat afwisselend op die drie UV-kampusse gehou sal word. “Ons is trots om ’n geleentheid van hierdie aard aan te bied en glo dat dit een van die vlagskip-geleenthede op die Universiteit se kalender sal wees. Die mokete sal verder ook die universiteit se posisie in verhouding tot veeltaligheid stel en dit versterk,” sê dr Van Staden. 

Die Mokete is ooreenkomstig aan die doelwitte soos vervat in die ITP se werkstrome vir Onderrig en Leer, Studente- en Personeelervaring en Multikampusmodel.
