The Institute for Reconciliation and Social Justice is hosting the 2nd Annual Arts and Social Justice Week from 19–31 August 2013. Due to its popularity last year, the run of the festival has been extended to two weeks.

The festival celebrates freedom of expression through drama, dance, music, poetry, film, and arts exhibitions. This year the aim is to create an environment where creativity and academia join hands.

Highlights of the programme include an open-air film screening of the documentary 'Dear Mandela' on Friday 30 August. This film follows the journey of three young people from their shacks to the highest court in the land as they invoke Nelson Mandela's example and become leaders in a growing social movement. By turns inspiring, devastating and funny, the film offers a new perspective on the role that young people can play in political change and is a fascinating portrait of South Africa coming of age.

On Wednesday 21 August Prof Ntongela Desmond Masilela speaks on 'The contribution of Woman to Intellectual Thought about Modernity within the Context of the New African Movement'.

The documentary 'Injury Time' explores the question of who really benefited from the post-1994 democratic dispensation in the sporting arena. This screening takes place on Monday 26 August. Producer, Mark Fredericks tells a damning tale of betrayal and deceit, as an entire past of non-racial sport was written out of history.
