2020 FESTIVAL

About the 2020 ODA Virtual Festival

COVID-19 has really escalated our understanding and experience of the very destructive and unjust world that we as the human race has engineered for centuries! NOW the Human Race has to write its most important design brief in the history of humanity: “How do we collaborate and unite in solidarity to design the future world we all desire?

The ODA Festival is underpinned by the beautiful SA philosophy of Ubuntu which simple means “I am because you are”.  The purpose of our festival is to help drive and ignite the systemic change we are all seeking in our country and in Afrika. To change mindsets and behaviour, unlock new ideas and ignite aspirations and hope for a better future and to develop a thriving future-ready society of change makers and problem solvers who are equipped with future-skills, creative intelligence, mindset and confidence to know how to add significance and meaning at the center of purpose driven businesses, sustainable environments and thriving communities now and in the future. We believe that COVID-19 has escalated the value of ODA Festival. JOIN US and lets learn, share, play, collaborate and experience together!

The festival programme is curated to feature events and experiences for people from all walks of life who want to learn new skills and more about the possibilities and opportunities to get involved and help drive change in our society and diverse communities.
