The programme observes the national heritage week theme: “Celebrating Heroes and Heroines of the Liberation Struggle in South Africa.” The celebration, jam-packed with thought provoking discussions, electrifying performances, film screenings and tours, kicks off in the Amphitheatre at the Iziko South African Museum at 10am.

Traditional dance performances, ghoema entertainers, magic shows, drumming sessions, poetry, music and more, will be hosted at the ‘hearth of our heritage.’ See the performance, Woza Cape Town, a collaborative production of poetry, dance and song, presented by The Dance Project, which highlights the significance of the South African struggle and historical sites like District Six.
