Constitutional Hill is home to this year’s annual Basha Uhuru Youth Festival.
Kicking off yesterday the Basha Uhuru Youth Festival celebrates different aspects of the local youth creative industry, in the categories of art, film, design and music through a selection of workshops, exhibitions,entrepreneurial programs and more. In partnership with Nando’s, the festival is paying homage to the youth of June 16 1976 by creating space to celebrate the youth of today - what better way to do it.
Last night’s programme included a poster exhibition by applauded photographer Jodi Bieber in collaboration with 45 young Joburgers, and alongside curator and designer Brenton Maart. In addition to that, Gay and Lesbian Memory in Action - another exhibition that will also be featured at the festival. The Nando’s Creative Exchange program, will be showcasing the work of Chriso Basson, Ludumo Maqabuka, Nkoali Nawa and Nkosinathi Quwe’s. Basha Bacha creative conversations, which kicked off yesterday, based on the creative entrepreneurs’ program in supported by the Gauteng Enterprise Propeller.
And what is a festival without a brilliant music line up? We are looking forward to experiencing the likes of Sho Madjozi, Black Motion, Zoe Modiga, Muzi, Moonchild Sanelly and more who will surely inspire us to move and be free. Craft and food markets will be open throughout the whole weekend for your enjoyment.
