ACTIVATE! partnership event with Cape Town Museum

We are working on a partnership with the Cape Town Museum and Western Cape Provincial Government on a social inclusion dialogue as one of the ongoing activities planned under Cape Town museum.

Cape Town Museum: a new Western Cape provincial museum. Though the museum’s programmatic focus is still being developed, it is envisaged that the museum will explore and reflect on Cape Town as a dynamic network of people, processes and natural and man-made features that extend beyond the official geographical boundaries of the City. The mission for the Museum include:

  • Being a public space that plays an important role in the development of social inclusion and cohesion, building a culture of active citizenship, reflecting on collective identities and fosters respect for human rights and gender equality, and
  • Being an inclusive public place that provides a platform to address social, economic and environmental concerns.

The museum does not have a building yet, the museum is active using its website as a virtual museum space and creating a physical presence through its network of partners and stakeholders. Our first engagements on Social Inclusion on 27 July 2018 is one of these projects undertaken in partnership with ACTIVATE! and Africa Unite. With this project, we would like to obtain a better understanding of the existence of networks in Cape Town and what divides us. Furthermore, we would like to explore how the Cape Town Museum can contribute to bridging gaps within communities and provide a public space for social inclusion initiatives.

We invite you to become part of this network and the Cape Town Museum space.

Date:     27 July 2018

Time:     9:00 – 14:30
