YOUTH CONTRIBUTION (article first published : 2004-06-14)

June is the month when South Africa celebrates the efforts of the youth against apartheid. Sadly, many young people lost their lives during this era but reparations have been made to rectify the wrongs of the past against the South African youth like the naming of one school in Soweto after one of the stalwarts of the youth movement who died in exile, Solomon Mahlangu.

The buzz word in South Africa this year is that South Africa celebrates ten years of democracy. The Bat Centre is an authentic Durban's Art and Cultural institution which has under its wing programmes like Moral Regeneration which aims to give the lost generation, especially streetchildren and those staying at places of safety, an opportunity to reclaim their lives and rehabilitate through visual arts, music and drama, etc.

The BAT Centre will host events on June 16 where young men and women can showcase their talents while also celebrating being the youth of South Africa.

Joining the streetkids in all the funfair activities planned for the day will be the students from the Bat Centre's Artists in Residency. Kicking off at 10h00, the events will being with an address by the youth mayor of the Ethekwini Municipality Youth Council.

The various participating youth groups will stage a drama, praise singing, traditional dance, gumboot dance, kwaito and mapantsula dance as well as a children's exhibition.

Parents are advised to expose their children to these events as the Bat Centre prides itself as an institution which promotes African art and music in times when everything is saturated with American culture. Entrance is free!
