Dialogues to mark Freedom Day

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

With South Africa due to mark Freedom Day on Friday, Brand South Africa will host intergenerational dialogues on progress that the country has made since attaining freedom.

“Ahead of Freedom Day on 27 April, Brand South Africa will encourage youth participation in the Freedom Day programme and other days of national significance to guide in constructing an intergenerational future for the country through the lessons of the past.

“Brand South Africa is also driving dialogues on social media platform through its campaign, The Mark That Made a Difference #makeyourmark, on the progress South Africa has made in the past 24 years,” Brand SA said on Wednesday.

The dialogues will be held in collaboration with Freedom Park in order to inspire constitutionalism, tolerance and constructive expression through #makeyourmark.

The dialogue will create an engaging and interactive platform with the stalwarts of freedom to share, discuss and educate youth and students. It will get underway at 10am at Freedom Park in Tshwane.

On Freedom Day, Brand South Africa will host an outdoor film screening of “Long Walk to Freedom”, which will be free to the public from midday onwards at Freedom Park.

In addition, the Singabantu fund raising fashion show will be held at Freedom Park on Saturday evening.

“We trust the Freedom Day programme will highlight the fruits of freedom and popularise the Constitution, as well as inspire active citizenship, intergenerational conversations and urge the youth and all citizens to #makeyourmark,” said Brand South Africa’s Stakeholder Relations Manager for Government Toni Gumede.

The national event to mark Freedom Day will be held at the Dr Rantli Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein, Free State. It will be addressed by President Cyril Ramaphosa. - SAnews.gov.za
