Activism/Transformation/Awareness Raising/Diversity 2017

Activism/Transformation/Awareness Raising

Our Hall Activism Rep this year was very busy and productive.  She organised a movie night screening of Roots for Human Rights Day, and a member from the Equity & Institutional Culture Office attended as a spokesperson, and a discussion was held afterwards.  For Women’s Day she arranged for inspirational messages to be placed under all the doors of women in Drostdy which was a touching gesture. She also organised posters to go along with this in partnership with the Hall Senior Student.  The Activism Reps also kept the Activism noticeboard in the dining hall up to date.

Celebrating Diversity

As always Drostdy Hall participated in the Annual International Parade.  The Annual Drostdy’s Got Talent Show organised by the Hall Senior student was held in the third term.  This is a popular Drostdy event that showcases the diverse talents in Drostdy.  Allan Gray House had a joint braai with College House to celebrate Heritage Day.

Awareness Raising Achievements

Two Drostdy students performed in the 2017 National Arts Festival in the Cult Clit production.

Cult Clit explored not only the silence and stigma around black female sexuality but also the spirit and playfulness of “black joy”, expressed through physical theatre, this play portrayed the struggles of being a black woman in society.

The play won the Student Theatre Award for Best Original Work.
