Activism through poetry has existed for as long as the art form itself.  Pithy and powerful, poetry has always been an effective means of getting a message across at protests and rallies.

From our hard-won struggle against apartheid, to womens’ liberation movements around the world, to the Fees Must Fall Campaign, poetry is commanding enough to gather a crowd.

Speaking truth to power remains a crucial role of the poet.

So too with theatre. It has and continues to provide a mirror to life. Theatre in South Africa has long played a role in the social justice space – provoking responses to the injustices of Apartheid and to the inequalities still prevalent in South African society.
