An in­vi­ta­tion to Africa Month events

Vuk'uzenzele - - Advertorial -

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:
