|THE BRUTUS SESSIONS (Poetry and Music) at the CCA house|
|Tuesday, 15 May 2012 13:28|
Date: 16 May 2012
Time: 4:00 – 5:30
Venue: Centre for Creative Arts House (UKZN Howard College Campus)
Presented by the Centre for Creative Arts and the Centre for Civil Society at the University of KwaZulu-Natal the inaugural BRUTUS SESSIONS will be the first live presentation by the BRUTUS POETS.
This collective will be acting under the auspices of the legacy of Dennis Brutus, an inspiring man who was unwavering in his commitment to arts activism, a 'humanist' who was able through his work to serve all people of the world who suffer a multitude of injustices that continue to corrode, corrupt and decay our world. This is the banner that the BRUTUS POETS rally towards, with the simple agenda of putting conscious pen to paper, to provide a poetic platform for others to stand on. The BRUTUS SESSIONS will be a reminder that consistent critical consciousness and social awareness will always be the initial catalyst for real change. Let us keep launching these forays into the mainstream consciousness, to keep the boat rocking with the motion that Dennis Brutus dedicated his life to. His passion and productivity has no less relevance now then when he was with us, and we have the opportunity to carry his wisdom, his wit and his words with us, into new heads and hearts, for the sake of us all. With Dennis Brutus as our inspiration, we could not have a more solid foundation to stand on, to help others to find their footing and together lift ourselves to the next level of community and consciousness.
