OVERVIEW OF THE PARK
A powerful celebration of the life and legacy of an anti-apartheid activist whose life was brutally cut short, allegedly at the hands of the repressive regime.
As we herald in this month that being Heritage and Tourism Month, we celebrate our rich heritage as South Africans. The theme for this year is “Reclaiming, restoring and celebrating our living heritage”.
The diversity of our beliefs, traditions, culture and language is that which sets us apart as a nation. It is a constant opportunity for each of us to grow, to learn and to be enriched. As we celebrate who we are and where we come from, we invite each and every South African to celebrate with us – at a place that captures the heart and soul of South Africa in one breath-taking space: Freedom Park.
The abhorrent reality of femicide in South Africa is violent and disturbing.
As we conclud Women’s Month… nothing prepared South Africans for the violent and brutal murder of UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana. As her death drew widespread outcry and condemnation and an online petition demanding justice with the #IAMNEXT campaign.
