COMMONWEALTH PEOPLE’S CENTRE (article first published : 1999-11-1)

The Commonwealth People's Centre (CPC), a civil society event which takes place parallel to CHOGM, will be made up of exhibitions; conferences, workshops and seminars; non-governmental organisation (NGO) study visits; and culture.

Apart from A Common Wealth Of Dance, the CPC culture component will include an outdoor concert in Durban's Bay Lawn (near the Amphitheatre, North Beach) under the theme Peace in the Commonwealth/Peace in the World with BBC World Service-sponsored Ladysmith Black Mambazo performing as part of the group's Millennium Concert Series. A Prayer for Peace, organised by the World Council on Religion and Peace, a Commonwealth Peace Run, and several other events are scheduled for various venues around Durban.

In addition to the CPC, other events taking place in conjunction with the CHOGM are The Commonwealth NGO Forum, The Commonwealth Children's Summit, The Commonwealth Youth Summit and The Commonwealth Media Centre. The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is held every two years and takes place in Durban this year from November 12 to 15.
