Soweto Story Telling

Thursday Feb 22 2018 [...]     10823A Pooe St, cnr Ramushu St, Orlando West, Soweto    

Celebrating the eternal African tradition of telling stories around the fire, Lebo's Soweto Backpackers hosts this special Story Telling session on the last Thursday of every month. Each month has a different theme such as youth, education, freedom or tradition and the event regularly attracts well-known local activists with some incredible stories of struggle and liberation to share, as well as community elders and other Africans from far flung corners of the continent who have an innate talent for story telling.

'Listen, share and learn' is the mantra and the event is imbued with an intimate and unique atmosphere that is perfect for sharing stories and experiences with new people from different backgrounds.

Thu Feb 22: This month's edition is themed An Artist Journey with local artist Silas Motse telling stories about his life and inspirations, the urge to express his African identity and his passion for Rastafarianism. Silas will also share his creative process through a live-drawing session and a 'mini-exhibition' of some of his most loved work.
