The University of UCLA in Los Angeles, California USA has invited Freedom Park to participate in the inaugural meeting of the partners of the International Digital Ephemera Project (IDEP).  The meeting is scheduled from the 18-22 July 2016. The meeting will discuss collective efforts in identifying digitalization, access cultural heritage at risk and plan collaboration for the future. Representatives from Cuba and Armenia National Libraries will also attend the meeting. Freedom Park will be represented by its CEO Ms Jane Mufamadi.

She was a finalist in the Agencies and Regulatory Authorities category in the SADC Region. This auspicious event took place at Midrand Conference Centre this month.

The award could not have been awarded to a more deserving person. Mufamadi kicked off her career as a lecturer of indigenous Knowledge System at the University of Venda for Science and Technology. She joined Freedom Park during conceptualization phase as a consultant and progressed to be appointed as a manager in the CEO’s office.  She grew within the ranks and later became the Head of Department of Heritage and Knowledge and ultimately becoming the Chief Executive Officer.

The award did not come as a surprise as Ms Jane Mufamadi leads an institution that has been rated as one of the top 10 most striking architecturally striking museums in the world by Visi Magazine.
