2020 marked the rise and reinvention of the Botswana artivist. Now, more than ever, young creatives in this country are fighting to implement lasting social and cultural change. Looking to the past to curate their futures, they are using their platforms to speak out against and challenge some of the country's more problematic and harmful narratives. Traditionally, Botswana is a modest nation with much of the population reluctant to go against the grain, but this past year’s global turmoil has sparked a new movement spearheaded by musicians, bloggers, skaters and models. From publicising the country’s concerning rape statistics to expanding the rights of the LGBTQI+ community, Batswana youth are finally at the forefront and ready to dismantle their nation’s oppressive systems. Here we profile some of the most inspiring changemakers.
