Qiniso dialogues: What is our common identity?

Posted on October 19, 2011

The Gordon Institute of Business Science (Gibs) and the Mail & Guardian held the first of six Qiniso Dialogues on Thursday and Friday last week, bringing together 60 "movers and shakers" to discuss challenges currently facing South Africans. The Qiniso, or truth, Dialogues aims to produce "a set of key questions that every South African must answer in order to secure a better future for our country".

Manager for Gibs' Dialogue Circle Anthony Prangley opened the Qiniso Dialogue sessions, and said it was important that the participants raise the debate about South Africa's future and "our stake in it". "We must raise the debate not only amongst ourselves, but also encourage a broader debate in the country about where we are going and about each of our responsibilities," Prangley said.

Managing partner of indiAfrique and Qiniso co-organiser Seth Naicker led the Qiniso Dialogue participants on a walk through Newtown, where hidden sites were used as tools to facilitate reflection and debate amongst the group. Once the thought exercises were completed, the participants were urged to consider which questions they believed would assist in shaping a future South Africa.
