Phakama celebrated 25 years
2021 marked 25 years since Phakama’s first project, Bulang Dikgoro (Open the Gates), an international exchange project in which Young People and Artists from London collaborated with Young People and Artists in South Africa.
Since that first project in 1996, Phakama has continued to spread our non-hierarchical methodology of Give & Gain, a process that creates the opportunity for collaborative arts and theatre-making; where everyone involved has something to learn and something to teach.
In celebration of this momentous occasion, Phakama hosted 25 projects, shows, sharings and workshops which continued to spread our spirit of exchanging, sharing, and seeing and celebrating the value in everyone’s individual voice, experience, and talents.
