UNITING SOUTH AFRICANS FOR POSITIVE CHANGE
WE OFFER OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENGAGEMENT IN CONSTRUCTIVE DIALOGUE AND FOR THOUGHTFUL PERSPECTIVES TO BE HEARD.
Our mission is to create safe spaces where people of all races and cultural backgrounds can listen, talk, understand, ask and learn from each other in constructive discussion. We aim to host these discussions in a positive environment born from the need for (re)conciliation and transformation in South Africa.
To form groups across South Africa that have honest conversations among all racial groups.
To create a culture of open, meaningful and respectful dialogues.
To become the place for thoughtful perspectives and constructive dialogues about race, (re)conciliation and transformation.
The expected outcome for Real Talk is to move South Africa closer to (re)conciliation.
To create a safe place for conversation among different races where they have the opportunity to build relationships and reimagine their attitudes and behaviour towards each other.
To provide opportunities to listen and understand each other.
To take risks by having difficult conversations about taboo topics.
To create an ethos of respect and openness between races to understand each other better.
To encourage participants to recognise each other’s common humanity.
To offer a way forward by being able to envision a future beyond our anger and pain.
To develop healthy narratives that will remove the divide between races.
