HIFA 1-6 May

Giving Voice to the Voiceless

29 March 2015

HIFA works with marginalised communities to give them a space to participate
in social endeavour as well as to express themselves fully. HIFA works with street youth, orphans and vulnerable children, prisoners and rural women amongst others, meaningfully contributing to psycho-social support, helping develop life skills and employment opportunities and offering ways to communicate their message to society.
Within all vulnerable groups, women and girls tend to form a subset of further marginalised persons. In a year that marks the deadline for the attainment of the Millennium development Goals (amongst which gender equality and empowerment of women), HIFA activities will also see women empowerment being a common thread within them. this year, HIFA’s un-ticketed First street Platform will provide an opportunity for the Arts to be a medium for free expression especially by those who do not usually have such opportunity. Performances on this stage happen during each lunchtime of the Festival week, offering access to those with too little time or financial resources to enter the Festival site.
