Along this path, we have had to encounter loss. One of our talented participants, Litemba Mpambani, suffered a tragic accident that took her life.
We dedicate this year’s programme to Litemba and all those who survive her.
To your unyielding spirit. To the fire that lived behind your eyes and the effortless magnitude you carried.
To a young woman whose life reminded us that Art can penetrate every corner of our being, and urge us to grow.
Today we light a match and carry the torches to ignite the flames you would have,
in your wake – which are universes wide and oceans deep.
May you multiply, may you infinitely rise.
