Ishashalazi Women’s Theatre Festival is hosted by The Kwa Mashu Community Advancement Projects (K-CAP) during South Africa’s month of August.

It celebrates and honours women from all walks of life, but equally creates a platform where concerns, triumphs and challenges may find a channel for solutions – by them and for them! It provides a seminal platform on which women discuss their views, network and share insights into wisely navigating through the maze of life for the now and the future.

The Festival raises societal awareness of saying we should be concerned that the greatest cause of anomalies is levelled against women and children, yet by resolutions and corrective measures are hardly conceived by them. Realising that most of social ills against women usually happen in their adolescent stage, K-CAP has consciously embedded seminars and empowerment workshops which, through experts who advocate for women solidarity, development, and equitable integration into mainstream sectors.

The Ishashalazi Seminar took place on August 25, 2022, at 11h00.

Ishashalazi Women’s Festival is a four-day event where different female productions showcase their theatre short stories (2022 THEMES: Nation Building, Heritage, Covid-19 Pandemic, GBV, Social Cohesion) and winners are announced on the third day, which will be on August 28, 2022.
