Social Justice organizations and the arts play an important role in upholding the ideals of human rights in South Africa and on the continent. Social justice and human rights have a shared goal: human dignity, equally for all.
The area surrounding the festival Social Forum connects grassroots and national organizations working in the human rights arena with each other to address issues of concern. The stalls of participating organizations will be clustered around the Social Forum aligned to their identified focus areas. Spaces will be themed accordingly providing networking opportunities to connect and collaborate.
The themed spaces will be interactive, educational and site-specific and will engage fellow activist organizations as well as civil society in discussion and other activities.
