On Women’s Day, SABC Education participated at the Women’s Humanity Arts Festival at the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town where they also held a screening of Life Begins after Coffee, a heart-warming actuality series which explores ableism in society.

Life Begins after Coffee was broadcast on SABC 2 and is premised on ableism; the discrimination or social prejudice against persons with disabilities.

Societal and personal ideas, attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes, be it conscious or unconscious, may offend persons with disabilities.

The series unpacks these stereotypes whilst focusing on job creation for persons with disabilities. It was produced by the TV Smiths. The director, presenter and two of the main characters were women.

Surekha Singh represented SABC Education at the festival and shares, “It was an insightful experience to view the show amongst both non-disabled and persons with disabilities and discuss how the series and episode was designed.

It was wonderful to observe their expressions and reactions as the narrative unfolded and how they could appreciate the characters for who they were and their life dreams looking beyond their disabilities”

Danie Swart, the Head of SABC Education adds, “This was a great opportunity for the broadcaster to share in a public space and on Women’s Day the innovative content produced on inclusivity. The series was supported by, SABC 360 Disability Campaign, Down Syndrome South Africa and the Deaf community from the Western Cape.”

Dr Marlene le Roux a South African disability and women's rights activist, co-founder of the Women’s Achievement Network for Disability and CEO of the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town supported and endorsed the series commended the work done by the SABC

The 2019 Artscape Women’s Humanity Arts Festival, from 27 July to 16 August 2019, features stage productions, workshops, films, exhibitions, discussions, and talks that focus on issues relating to (but not exclusive to) women. Men, especially younger men, can benefit greatly by attending, contributing to and learning from the inspiring programme.

All episodes on the series are available on SABC Education YouTube channel, click here.
