An invitation to Africa Month events
The Africa Month 2017 theme is “The Year of OR Tambo: Building a Better Africa and a Better World”. The Department of Arts and Culture invites all Africans, and global guests, to join the celebrations.
As an integral part of Africa, South Africa’s interest is linked to continental stability, unity and prosperity. Our African agenda is the upliftment of all people on the continent.
Arts and Culture’s existing programmes inculcate an African identity by popularising the national flag and anthem, and the continental flag and AU anthem. A month-long programme, a festival of ideas, and a celebration of what it means to be African will also expand our knowledge and help us embrace our continental destiny. Celebrations during Africa Month will include:
