About

# 18:00 – 20:30 - Tuesday, 10th March 2020; Lokxion Poetry House: Are We All Equal Citizens? - Language – Sihle Dolophini & Phikelela Siphosethu



We’ve been bringing people together in communities in Stellenbosch, Western Cape, to interrogate the word ‘Citizen’. We’ve asked people young and old what it means to them, what it inspires and how they think the idea of being an equal citizen relates to local communities, to the country and the wider world. The poets will explore and express their point of view about being a citizen and lead a conversation(s) about the Land, Racism, Education, Gender, Language, Democracy and Youth.


#Language; There has been a prevailing debate on the status of all official languages in South Africa since the dawn of democracy. South Africans must celebrate all their mother languages as an important feature of their identities and destinies. These languages must be jealously guarded, not lost through disinterest and facile notions of language superiority.
