The Hub at Ba re e ne re

Ba re e ne re Literature Festival is an annual festival in Lesotho which promotes increased literacy, encourages creative writing and aids artistic exchange between creatives in Lesotho, Basotho outside of Lesotho and creatives from other cultures.

Through an essay writing competition and with support from Glasswaters Foundation, 12 Hub members attended Ba re e ne re Literature Festival held at Machabeng College in Maseru from 5-6 December.

They had a unique opportunity absorb the amazing energy and knowledge shared in the conversations, performances, lectures and mentorship sessions that went down at the festival. They also used their recently learned skills in film-making, and created short films about the importance of reading and writing.

Below,  see the video highlights from Ba re e ne re Literature Festival. Masterfully filmed and edited by Lesotho’s own Sehlabaka Rampeta and his team, the video demonstrates the power of the festival and the brilliance of the guests, performers and audience. So much talent in one place. Enjoy the video and see you at the next festival!
