Film producer, Anant Singh produced a GBV awareness film to highlight the call for people to act against this scourge in our society.  The film shows how endemic Gender-Based Violence has become, while also acknowledging the strength and resilience of women.

 

The film has been endorsed by the Department of Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities; UN Women; the Nelson Mandela Foundation; Josina Machel’s Kuhluka Movement; and the UN Secretary General’s UNiTE campaign to end violence against women.  The film can be viewed at and shared from.

Singh commented, “I was inspired to use scenes from our film, YESTERDAY and my other films to create an awareness film that is emotive, thought-provoking and essential. Women in our country live through the trauma of Gender-Based Violence every day.  The film also tackles ‘standbyerism’ which contributes to the ambivalence of most people towards violence against women, resulting in victims constantly having to defend themselves while others stand by and do nothing to assist them. They too are the perpetrators! As we observe 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, our society needs to be reminded how serious this issue is, and I urge each one of us to take action to rid our society of this plague. It is our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters who are the victims.”

16 DAYS ACTIVISM 25 NOV - 10 DEC 2020
Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

The international campaign for 16 Days Of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence begins on Wednesday 25th November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and ends on Thursday, 10th December, International Human Rights Day.

Summer is drawing closer, days are stretching longer, and the need to get together and celebrate with each other is growing stronger.

Grand Africa Rising is a series of expertly produced residencies created with the intention of highlighting not only the cream of Africa’s musical crop, but also showcasing them in a beautiful setting and broadcasting this to the world. Featuring the hottest music talent in Africa, Grand Africa Rising is a celebration of all that we are, all things Africa.

Kicking off on the 5th of November, the series of carefully curated experiences will be celebrated on the First Thursday of every month for the duration of Summer, and what better venue to launch the concert series than at the V&A Waterfront’s iconic Grand Africa Café & Beach?

 

A one-of-a-kind seafront venue and private beach, a favourite for locals and internationals alike, the Grand Africa Café & Beach is the perfect place to enjoy sundowners and launch your way into party-mode, all in full view of Table Mountain as a backdrop, and the Atlantic Ocean lapping away beside you.

 

A name to send shivers down musical spines in the know, multi-award winning DJ, producer, and TV personality and all-round party-starter Prince Kaybee will be leading the charge as the first of our hand-selected acts. Hot on the heels of his latest album entitled Project Hope, the mastermind behind dance-floor bangers like “Charlotte”, “Fetch Your Life”, and “Uwrongo” is especially in celebration mode since he won Male Artist of the Year at this year’s SAMA Awards.

 

Prince Kaybee’s most recent album, Project Hope, is more than a musical work of art, but rather an initiative directed at upholding women and taking a stand against gender-based-violence, featuring ten of SA’s hottest up-and-coming female vocalists, some of whom will be accompanying this grand event.

 

In the spirit of partying for a good cause, Grand Africa Rising will assist Prince Kaybee in raising funds for the Heidedal Youth Mission Centre (House of Hope), a community-based child and youth care centre situated in Bloemfontein. A portion of the proceeds will go directly towards providing a safe, nurturing environment for children who have been abused, abandoned, neglected, and orphaned, providing them with a place to stay, and developing skills to allow self-sustainability in their futures.

 

The event will be inside the Grand Hall, which will be set up in compliance with COVID-10 regulations and safety measures, permits, and by-laws. Let’s all play, safely. This is an exclusive limited guest event for over 18’s only.

Event details are as follows:

Date: 5 November 2020, First Thursdays Summer Residency

Doors open at 4pm.

  • DJ Line-up:
