In honour of National Women’s Day, Colleen Balchin and Koleka Putuma will host a talk titled “The Change Agents”, whereby conversations will explore women’s identity across the arts, culture and entertainment industries. Speaker Colleen Balchin is a DJ and co-founder of “Pussy Party”, a “gender non-specific femininity appreciation society” that hosts femme focused events in Johannesburg every month. Koleka Putuma is an award-winning poet and theatre practitioner, known for her book of poems: “Collective Amnesia”.
The Q&A session starts promptly at 10 am on Saturday, August 11 at the SELECT Courtyard in Braamfontein. Running since 2016 and hosted by local creative legend Mpumelelo ‘Frypan’ Mfula, the SELECT x STORIES is a series of knowledge-sharing events celebrating street culture, art, media and music. The event is free of charge and open to all, but space is limited, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
