The Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education

The Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education draws its name ‘Tshisimani’ from a word in the TshiVenda language meaning fountain, spring or ‘at the water source’. This captures the driving inspiration for the Centre, which is to nourish, replenish and sustain the power and capacity of activist movements, organisations and networks engaged in grassroots struggle to build a just society in South Africa and internationally.

Dinga Sikhwebu is one of the co directors of the centre  The Tshisimani Centre hosts regular public seminars, lecture series, and documentary screenings on questions of politics, current affairs, history and theory that are of critical concern to activists. They also offer activist’s course.
