Our mission is to bring together and unite all women from the Mother City's cultural kaleidoscope: To hear their voices, to know, experience, share, work and learn together. To highlight and promote their past, present and future achievements, not victimhood. Woman Zone is a place to be heard. HOT OFF THE PRESS: WOMAN ZONE & ARTSCAPE'S 15TH WOMENS HUMANITY ARTS FESTIVAL As a result of the COVID19 Lockdown, we've gone digital - at least until it's safe to go back into the community and to our Women's Library at Artscape. But good news is that YOU can still be part of the WOMAN ZONE family. Firstly - by taking part with us in the 15th ARTSCAPE WOMEN'S HUMANITY ARTS FESTIVAL! See the details of all our activities below - any questions, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com The theme of this year’s Festival is The Year of Charlotte Maxeke. 2021 commemorates the 150th anniversary of Maxeke’s birth, recognising her as an inspiration and trailblazer. A political activist and struggle icon she was the first black South African woman in achieve a university degree. She made an indelible impact in the areas of education, faith and politics and was instrumental in the foundation of the National Council of African Women. Celebrating all that women are achieving today the following events come under the Woman Zone banner: WALK WITH US: Anytime between 1 - 31st August : A focal part of the annual Festival is the Artscape Woman’s Humanity Walk.
