The Outreach Foundation is proud to present the 14th Inner-City High Schools Drama Festival, a unique drama festival in Hillbrow which promises to change lives, inspire creativity and promote positive change. The theme for 2018 is African Futures. The students who participate in the festival will have an opportunity to engage investigate, research and unpack the various ideas and stories that may emerge from this theme. As young people living in Johannesburg, it is hoped that this exciting theme will open their imaginations to creating inspiring new imaginary worlds. Thinking about African Futurism is not limited to imagining advances in science and technology, but is intended as a way for the learners to explore how they imagine themselves, their communities and their environment in the future, using the many languages and materials of theatre-making.
The festival is made possible in partnership with the Department of Arts and Culture, Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), the Market Theatre Laboratory, Bread for the World, Ford Foundation, Assitej South Africa, and the Johannesburg International Arts Alive Festival
