Talking Afrikaans

How white is Afrikaans? Will the former ‘language of the oppressor’ survive? How do Afrikaans speakers respond to efforts by Dutch populists politicians to abuse the language for right wing purposes? Adriaan van Dis interviewed South African journalist, writer and visual artist Kirby van der Merwe at the annual Drongo Festival on Saturday 27 September 2014 in OBA, Oosterdokskade 143 in Amsterdam.

The event was organised by ZAM & Drongo. On the love for language & the position of South African coloured communities. More information about the event and the festival see www.drongofestival.nl
