We’re still on cloud nine from the incredible vibe experienced at the 3rd Ba re e ne re Literature Festival held at Machabeng College in Maseru from 5-6 December 2015. We had the great privilege of hosting a wonderful crew of guests at this festival and our young audience came out to en masse to absorb the amazing energy and knowledge shared in the conversations, performances, lectures and mentorship sessions that went down at the festival.
As is always the case there were a few unexpected challenges to overcome and bumps in the road, but we stayed focused and delivered in putting on a successful event. When you see young, hungry eyes, witness incredible connections being made and feel the warmth of fingers snapping with appreciation to profound words it’s a reminder that the months of toiling are all worth it.

We’re really proud of what we were all able to accomplish together. Thank you to all of our sponsors, partners, guests, volunteers, media team, performers, audience members and friends who helped make the festival magical.
