Event description

Description

The Bishop Simeon Trust invites you to the launch of ‘IzwiLethu: Our Voice’ exhibition at Artsmill on Linden Road in Hebden Bridge.

The exhibition will showcase innovative artworks produced by the children the Trust works with in South Africa. These will include comics and films created entirely by children in townships to the East of Johannesburg who want to share their stories. Through our programmes, we use this creative approach to help them to deal with the problems they’ve faced in life. By helping them to express their views and experiences, we support young people to raise awareness and lead campaigns for change in their communities.

The charity has invited Hebden Bridge’s own storyteller Ursula Holden Gill, to perform stories written by children from the townships that the Bishop Simeon Trust supports. In addition, Professor Paul Cooke – a project collaborator from the University of Leeds - will present his award-winning short film ‘The Born Free Generation, Phendulani’s Story and Me’, filmed in the township of Katlehong.
