impepho press: Holding Space for the Intersectional Feminist Voice of Africa

Vangile Gantsho: “Another thing that brought impepho press together was our commitment to healing in the work we do, individually and I suppose, now as a collective. All three of the founding members hold space and have a vested interest in facilitating dialogue, so that we can be a part of better, healthier communities. Be it through teaching, feminist dialogues, and/or pursuing spiritual callings.

vangile gantsho and friends at the National Arts Festival 2020

So.. Toni Stuart Vusumzi Ngxande and I made this thing. A poetry and film meditation. And it’s going to be a part of the National Arts Festival.

For all three of us, this is our NAF debut, and we are so proud of what we have birthed.

forgetting. and memory is a multi-sensory interactive meditation. It comes with instructions for the audience, and requires an open heart.

Please buy tickets. Please enjoy it at your own pace. And please give us feedback.

We poured our hearts into this!
