The battle to get to work and home

13/06/2017

The majority of the Bush Radio team have to rely on public transport to get to work and home. As most of us live on the Cape Flats taking this mode of transport can be scary at the best of times. Mkhuseli Veto was trekking home when he captured the following footage.

Words laid bare – 2017 Naked Word Festival

30/05/2017

lingua franca

The 2017 Naked Word poetry and spoken word festival will take place from 8 to 11 June at the Theatre Arts Admin Collective in Observatory, Cape Town. The Naked Word festival attracts the attendance of poets and audience from all over the country.

The theme for this second annual Naked Word Festival is “I Speak of My Inherit-Age”. History has displaced many South Africans, culturally and physically. We want to place ourselves culturally, but that demands a re-shape of our understanding of ‘culture’. We are acknowledging that many stories and histories dissipated during colonisation and the new South African dispensation. We are redefining culture as generational, and we are employing live poetry, music and dialogue to do this”.

The Festival is funded by Western Cape Government, Department of the Premier. Other sponsors and partners include Bush Radio, Grounding Sessions, Theatre Arts admin Collective and The Radioactive Blog.

02/05/2017

“A critical, independent and investigative press is the lifeblood of any democracy. The press must be free from state interference. It must have the economic strength to stand up to the blandishments of government officials. It must have sufficient independence from vested interests to be bold and inquiring without fear or favour. It must enjoy the protection of the constitution, so that it can protect our rights as citizens.” – Nelson Mandela on freedom of expression, at the International Press Institute congress (14 February 1994)
