PJ Powers will launch her latest song ‘Take A Walk In My Shoes’ at the start of the festival’s walk, 8am Sunday morning.

Constitution Hill, in partnership with the human rights and social justice fraternity, is proud to present the inaugural Human Rights Festival.

The Human Rights Festival commemorates Human Rights Day which pays homage to all those who lost their lives in the fight for democracy, particularly during the Sharpeville Massacre of 21 March 1960. It also highlights the work of social justice organisations and underlines the importance of civic activism and the values and principles enshrined in the constitution – equality; justice; freedom and dignity.

It provides an opportunity to celebrate the gains we have made, but more importantly, the Festival highlights the action that is still required to realise social justice in SA, on the African continent and globally.

The Constitutional Court will form the backdrop of the Festival which is built around a robust programme, involving social justice and human rights activists across all spectrums of our society. The festival is intended to celebrate, promote and defend human rights. It offers three days of activism, debates, art, culture, exhibitions, books, poetry, comedy, film and music.  An food and designer-makers market will provide additional variety to the Festival.
