The New World Foundation presents the launch of their new book, Women Surviving Lavender Hill, at the Artscape. A two-year writing project facilitated by Kim Pillay culminates on Women’s Day with the launch of this book written by Valerie Adams, Naema Moses, Margaret Arendse, Mary Bam, Veronica Kroukamp, Sheila Jacobs and Lorna Snyman.
Each woman shares their story of how they survived violence and abuse with the hope to raise awareness about the challenges faced by women living in Lavender Hill, where the community is ravaged by crime, poverty, gang violence and addiction. The project started as a healing process to help women deal with the trauma of violence and with the book, they hope to provide others with strength and healing. After the official launch, the group move to the Opera Bar for photo opportunities and book signings.
Venue: Chandelier Foyer, Artscape Theatre Centre, D.F. Malan St, Foreshore, Cape Town
Time: 12pm to 12.30pm
