The Zwakala Festival continues to remain one of South Africa’s most dynamic theatre festivals aimed specifically at community-based theatre-makers. The festival’s main aim is to improve the skills of writers, directors, designers, and actors. It empowers them to create and produce local content of a high standard and trains the next generation of community arts leaders, arts entrepreneurs and administrators. It also takes participants through a journey of both the creative and practical sides of producing a professional theatre piece.
