Irma Aloven Titus is a child of Bonteheuwel. An active community builder since the age of 15, she is known to her community as a fearless spokenword artist. Titus is also a freelance journalist and multimedia ‘artivist’, and was editor and project coordinator of Edge of the Table – a book project documenting life-story narratives of 14 Cape Flats youth.
In 2013 the Mail & Guardian recognized Titus as one of the ‘200 Young South
Africans to take to lunch’ for her civil society contribution. She is a founding member of BLAC – Bonteheuwel Legacy Arts Collective: a socio-enterprise promoting arts and culture on the Cape Flats for creatives contributing to self-sustainability. BLAC recently helped bring home the ‘pride of Bonteheuwel’ with the screening of Action Kommondant, a multi-award winning documentary by Nadine Cloete which details the untold story of the revolutionary freedom fighter Ashley Kriel.
