On the last day of the winter school we held a talent show and a party. The talent show was a huge hit with learners and volunteers alike; in fact it got everyone up on their feet dancing and singing along to tunes sung by the ikamva ‘stars’ of the moment. The talent show was a powerful platform for learners to express themselves in spaces not usually available in the Ikamva framework. Besides creative talent, the learners also demonstrated insightful commentaries on life through performance poetry and speeches that they gave. This was all followed by a great party with celebratory snacks.
