Transformation in the Rock Scene

The transformation of spaces, particularly South African universities, has been making news since the #RhodesMustFall campaign began. More recently the documentary Luister from the University of Stellenbosch looked at the treatment of black students with the university and social spaces around Stellenbosch.

How do other social spaces navigate transformation when there is little or no political intervention?

The rock music sub-culture or rock music scene is a fairly underground social space where people connect through their love of a common music genre.

How do race relations play out in a scene such as this and how do people of colour engage and navigate this predominantly white male sub-culture in South Africa?
