O.R. Tambo was a multi-faceted individual. He had many passions, ranging from politics and history to science, mathematics, golf and choral music – he was an avid composer!
The objective of 2019 Oliver Tambo Memorial Lecture is to create a conversation around social and cultural activism spanning the years that Tambo was the President of the ANC, to date, and beyond. The lecture will explore the role of arts and culture in promoting freedom, dignity, humanity, unity and social cohesion. Arts and culture can be more effectively employed in future to positively impact our individual and national growth.
