Media Alert: Minister Marais Officially Launches Oral History Initiative
Tomorrow, 4 December 2015, the Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais, will officially launch the Oral History Initiative in Hawston. The Oral History Initiative aims to integrate the various components within the Department of Cultural and Sport, by capturing and documenting the stories of communities within the Western Cape. The launch will afford local community members, including sports legends, a chance share their personal stories with each other.
Minister Marais calls on each citizen in the Western Cape to share their stories at their local participating libraries. While promoting social inclusion through sharing our stories, we can also ensure that personal histories and experiences are kept alive in communities and within government so that future generations can celebrate their heritage.
ALL MEDIA ARE INVITED TO ATTEND
Date: Friday, 4 December 2015
Venue: Hawston Thusong Centre, Hawston
There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews.
