Institute hosts Artistic Social Justice Week
2012-08-15

The International Institute for Studies in Race, Reconciliation and Social Justice at the university is hosting its first annual week of Artistic Social Justice from 23 to 31 August 2012. The week consists of performing arts activities such as plays, live music, poetry and an art exhibition.

In what is expected to become one of the annual highlights on the Kovsie calendar, students will have an opportunity to express themselves artistically while creating an awareness about social responsibilities.

Activities lined up for the week include the cabaret Vagina Dentata, a musical satire which looks at the unique stories of South African women. The line-up also include a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexed performance piece with participants giving oral narratives of issues affecting the LGBTIQ community.

The exhibition, The F-word: Images of forgiveness, tells the stories of people whose lives have been shattered by violence, tragedy and injustice and who are learning to forgive, reconcile and move on.

Paul Chappell, Research Consultant at the Centre for the Study of Aids at the University of Pretoria, will deliver a guest lecture on sexuality and disability.
