Constitution Hill is a site of conscience – a place where you can take a stand - where shared ideas of human rights and human dignity can be imagined. An important way in which the Constitution Hill Human Rights Festival nurtures a culture of human rights activism is by encouraging audiences and participants to share critical ideas, possible solutions, and examples of good practice drawn from lived experience or from their professional areas of engagement.
The festival is known to be ‘a celebration and expression of artistic wealth among the youth of the country” and this year’s aim is to commemorate not only the 41st anniversary of June 16 uprising but also the 21st anniversary of the signing the constitution. The music concert will take place at the museum precinct at Constitution Hill. Some of the other artists that will be involved are Mpho Sebina, Stogie T, dj Kenzhero, Rosie Parade and DJ Speedsta. Two stages are set to light up the day. The Expressions of Freedom art exhibition will feature Nompumelelo Tshabalala, Zanele Mashinini, Bambo Sibiya, Victor Dlamini, Leeroy Jason and Anthea Moys.
