South Africa is celebrating 20 years of democracy and freedom this year! The arts – including music, film, theatre, literature and visual arts – have played a pivotal role in the anti-apartheid struggle and the important role of creative expression in South Africa continues today.
Africa in Motion has teamed up with the 4 other African film festivals in the UK to organise a touring programme of South African cinema called South Africa at 20: The Freedom Tour.
We are co-hosting with the University of Glasgow a one-day symposium, Twenty Years of Democracy: Art and Activism in South Africa, on Wed 3 Dec 2014.
We have also partnered with the live performance programme Afrovibes, to organise screenings of South African cinema alongside live performances of South African music, theatre and dance.
