Recording of the MISTRA Arts, national identities and democracy in South Africa Book Launch
10 February 2021
MISTRA launched its research publication entitled, Mintirho ya Vulavula: Arts, national identities and democracy in South Africa on the 10th of February 2021.
The edited volume examines the role of arts and culture in development, and specifically its value in consolidating our nascent democracy and in facilitating the transformation of South African society. Contributors to this volume interrogate the role of arts, culture and heritage from a transdisciplinary perspective, enriched by the cross-generational perspectives offered by young and older artists, cultural practitioners, activists and scholars. Authors also offer some policy recommendations on how the contribution of arts and culture to social cohesion and nation-building can be enhanced.
