The Creators

  • Date:  30 April, 2013
  • Time: 7:00 – 9:00PM
  • Venue: BloomBars, 3222 11th Street, NW Washington, DC 20010

THE CREATORS explores the chaotic reality of modern day South Africa through the work of artists.

Apartheid’s legacy left marks of injustice throughout South African society. While the young generation still struggles with violence and poverty, some have chosen a creative way to express their feelings. These “creators” use the strongest weapon they have in their hands: their art.

The film profiles contemporary artists Faith47 (street art), Warongx (afro-blues), Emile (hip-hop), Sweat.X (performance art), Blaq Pearl (spoken word) and Mthetho (opera).

  • Our film will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Laura Gamse.
  • Suggested Donation: $10.
  • Free popcorn and refreshments provided.

Proceeds will benefit both TransAfrica and BloomBars.  Your support of TransAfrica will help amplify the voice of millions of people in Africa and throughout the Diaspora.  Gifts to BloomBars helps support its programs and work in the community.

Special notice about the White House Tours

The Embassy of South Africa cannot arrange tours of the White House for South African citizens. The US Department of State has advised us that, at present access for foreign citizens to White House tours as part of an Embassy-sponsored public tour group, is on hold. We are therefore unable to process any requests at this time.

We will post an update to the website immediately if conditions change.
