About

Met Hein Willemse, Earl-Ray Basson en Giep van Zyl and Martelize Brink

Die 100-jarige viering van Afrikaans as ’n amptelike landstaal word vir 2025 beplan. Terwyl sommige al feesvure wil aansteek, voel ander hulle word nogmaals uitgesluit en generasies se deelname in die totstandkoming van die taal word misken. Afrikaans word immers al veel langer gepraat as die amptelike erkenning daarvan deur wit heersers. Hoe oud is die taal werklik? En maak dit saak? Kan ons ons liefde vir Afrikaans vier sonder om ’n ouderdom daaraan te koppel?


With Hein Willemse, Earl-Ray Basson, Giep van Zyl and Martelize Brink

A centenary to commemorate the status of Afrikaans as an official language is being planned for 2025. While some can’t wait to stoke the festival fires, others feel excluded yet again, as generations of speakers who helped to shape the language are being sidelined. Afrikaans was spoken long before white rulers gave it an official stamp. How old is the language exactly, and does it matter? Can we celebrate our love for the language without an age tag? Be part of this important discussion about the celebration of Afrikaans – the language Prof. Jakes Gerwel so dearly loved and fought for.

- Entrance to the discussions is free, but to ensure your seat, it is crucial to book your ticket through Webtickets and present it at the door.
- Books will be on sale at the venue and the authors will sign your copy after the talks.
- Join us for a cup of coffee – on the house – and be part of the conversations

Duration: 60Min
Language: Afrikaans
