Props to the South African author Mpho Matsitle who came through to our festival in January and documented the experience.
Here’s a quote from the article about our keynote speaker ‘Me Mpho Letima. Click the link below to see the full article.
“In our bid as the young, wild and free of Africa to control our narrative, much has been said of the need to unlearn, learn and relearn – ‘Me Mpho’s task was to question how this learning happens. A pedagogical exercise that she carried with an unprecedented level of enthusiasm, involving the whole hall in her address – that is; democratising the learning. She wasn’t just a teacher filling empty heads of students, but a co-learner leading the learning exercise.”
