“As a writer, particularly in non-fiction, I get to share what I think. And that, I have found, does influence people. Many of my writings have challenged people to see things differently, although we might still disagree.”

The aim of the event is to interrogate Pretoria’s role as a capital city through the activation of its public spaces through visual art and performance and music. Activities at the event will include art installations, performance art, and live performances by bands, screening of films, poetry readings, debates and panel discussions on art and racism, parkour and skateboarding.
