Three dance makers, who are also human rights activists in the sphere of inclusive disability dance practice, will be showcasing their work at the inaugural Artfluence Human Rights Festival.

Presented by the Centre for Creative Arts (CCA) at the University of Kwazulu-Natal (UKZN) until May 8, the festival aims to highlight the work of human rights defenders in South Africa and on the African continent.

Artfluence, which is supported by Embassy of the Netherlands, will also examine the role the arts and artists have in promoting human rights today.
