Decolonising the Classic Arts: Shifting the representation of indigenous language from community development work to professional art.

Creating artworks in your mother tongue – a conversation in isiZulu about the language itself being represented in the ‘classic arts’  theatre, dance and classical music – and how it is relegated to ‘community arts’ or ‘development works’. This conversation is specific to isiZulu but is a representation of indigenous languages in SA and around the world.
