Join us for a unique learning opportunity where art & activism comes alive with a powerful performance by the cast of African Youth Monologue followed by a candid conversation and question and answer session with the cast.
African Youth Monologue adapts the staging of Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues and uses story-telling to convey the real-life issues faced by young people across the Africa. Shaping their own narrative and using their own voice, the cast presents stories that are meant to provoke, challenge and inspire audiences while being inclusive and entertaining.
Addressing issues ranging from LGBT rights to economic security, the cast shares the reality of their world in an effort to help donors and change agents to understand their reality, what it will take to make lasting change in their context, and the impact of inaction on their and future generations.
