SERITI sa Basadi-Women's Dignity, a festival that celebrates National Women's Day, will be staged by the Sibikwa ArtsCentre.

It is the fourth annual festival that gives women a platform to express themselves through poetry and crafts. It will take place on August 9 and 10 in Newtown, Joburg, and in Benoni.

Kicking off the activities will be a huge poetry event on Sunday August 9 at the Bassline in Newtown.

A group of established and young female poets from Gauteng, Free State and KwaZulu-Natal will present their work on Sunday. There will also be a female DJ who will entertain peoplewith her juggling skills.

The second event will take place at Sibikwa Arts Centre in Benoni on Monday,August 10. It will run from 10am until 4.30pm and has an exciting line-up.

The programme for the day features story-telling, dance, craft and photographic exhibitions.

As in previous years, women will be able to share their work with each other and will also pay tribute to the women who marched against the pass laws to the Union Buildings in Pretoria in 1956.

All the work that will be exhibited is related to issues that affect women.

To enjoy this Women's Day event, the public will be required to pay only R20.
