Hey Hillbrow lets dlala! 2016
September 14, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
HEY HILLBROW! Let’s Dlala! (Let’s play!) is a festival which was first implemented in February 2016 in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, South Africa. This festival is a partnership between The Outreach Foundation, The Coloured Cube and Hillbrow residents with the intention on becoming an annual festival that celebrates the diversity which exists in Hillbrow. The longer term goal is to have the festival as the final culmination of a range of up skilling workshops for people of Hillbrow.
Hillbrow is an inner city of Johannesburg residential area. It is known for its high density, unemployment and crime. Most of the residents are migrants from the townships, rural areas, and the rest of Africa.
The festival brings people into the streets creating unity in diversity and highlighting the many talents which exist within the area relating to the creative sector. The public perception of this area is one perspective – we want to showcase the excitement, energy and creativity of this area.
