#June16: Remembering the Youth of ‘76

The 1976 uprising marked the beginning of a new era. The costs were high, but Soweto showed that struggle was possible, opening the last chapter in the anti-apartheid struggle.

The 1976 revolt rightly occupies a central place in the story of national liberation; the youth held a united front and gathered for a common purpose.

Sibikwa Arts Centre presents a series of interactive multimedia workshops for young people in grades 7 – 9. Commemorating the Soweto Uprising. These specially crafted workshops for learners examine the events which lead to the uprising and its consequences through the medium of audio, video and applied theatre techniques.
