Inspired by the societies and stokvels founded in townships across South Africa, Societea seeks to bring together creatives, artists and like-minded people as we think and explore together through the sharing of our experiences, processes and intentions.
Puleng Mongale uses her vivid collages as a way to connect with her Sotho heritage. Mongale’s artistic expression is mostly influenced by the stories of the women in her life. Mongale explores her identity through an internal dialogue that revolves around a re-imagined history, the establishment and maintenance of ancestral relationships, black womanhood, and re/claiming her heritage.
Brunch and conversation between Gogo Mahlodi and Puleng Mongale starts at 10 AM. To purchase your tickets email email@example.com or you can also get them at the door on the day of the event.
