WiB International gathering in South Africa, 5-8 March 2018

Latest Update

Women in Black international gathering hosted by WiB South Africa (WIBSA), Capetown.

5-8 March 2018

If you are planning to attend the WiB gathering in South Africa, you need to be thinking about booking your flights or other transport, visas (if you need one) and contacting WIBSA to let them know you are coming, request a registration form and book accommodation. Accommodation is limited, so please don’t forget to let WIBSA know.

In the next update about the WIB gathering in March, we will update you with a draft of the programme, details about our Women’s Day march to parliament on 8 March and relevant travel information.

The gathering will take place at the Castle of Good Hope. The castle was a military fort established by the first colonizers. It was also a place where anti-colonial leaders were imprisoned. The current managers of the space support civil and activist initiatives that repurpose the original use of the castle. The venue is in the Cape Town city centre, near to parliament where we will hold our International Women’s Day vigil.

WiBs will need to pay for their own air tickets, accommodation and transport in Cape Town
