  Project Phakama was set up in 1996 by the London International Festival of Theatre (LIFT) in partnership with Sibikwa Community Theatre, Johannesburg. It was originally launched as an arts exchange programme involving young people and arts and education practitioners from communities throughout South Africa and the UK.

In the Xhosa language, Phakama means rise up, elevate and empower yourself. Accordingly, Project Phakama offers intense cultural training which has resulted in a series of adventurous public performances and left a legacy of networks and opportunities in its wake. Project Phakama’s young people and facilitators work together in the UK and around the world to create theatrical events in any location with any young person.
