The 8th Africa Century International African Writers Conference
Write Associates in partnership with Department of Arts and Culture bring you the annual Africa Centruy International African Writers Conference, this year hosted under the theme “Africa Writing in Tongues: Towards Social, Political, Heritage and Culture Justice”.
What Is It?
The conference is in line with the United Nations (UN) declaration that 2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages (IY2019). The UN wants to raise awareness of indigenous languages not only to benefit native speakers of these languages, but also for others to appreciate the important contribution they make to our world’s rich cultural diversity.
This is an imbizo of authors, poets, literary critics, language practitioners and historians from across Africa, the Diaspora and the globe. Every year these role-players meet to explore the role of writers in society and hoping to influence the ongoing debates on languages and African identity, culture, heritage and embellishment of African values.
When Is It?
Thursday, 07 November 2019 at 09:00 – 17:00.
Where Is It?
Ditsong National Museum of Cultural History, Bosman Street & Visagie Street, Pretoria Central, 0002 Pretoria.
