CLASS ON CULTURAL LEADERSHIP IN THE ARTS -Wits University
On Wednesday afternoon, I presented a paper on the research and development of my play, The Robben Island Bible, which also included a summary of the recent workshops on ethical leadership held at South West Gauteng College.
This was a module open to any Wits drama student who had an interest in leadership in arts management. The presentation was attended by eight students and two of the courses lecturers.
Many of the students had not heard of the 'bible' story so I hope it was a good quick introduction to it as well as how Shakespeare effected the Liberation Movement leaders on Robben Island.
There was a strong engagement by the students who asked clear and precise questions about the application of the work as well as the relevance of Shakespeare in today's South Africa.
