MEDIA ALERT: MINISTER MARAIS TO OFFICIALLY ROLL OUT ORAL HISTORY INITIATIVE IN ELIM
On 29 May 2018, the Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais, will officially roll out the Oral History Initiative in Elim. The Oral History Initiative aims to capture and preserve the unique stories of communities within the Western Cape. The launch will afford local community members a chance to share their personal stories.
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.
The programme for the roll out is available online.
ALL MEDIA ARE INVITED TO ATTEND
Date: Tuesday, 29 May 2018
Venue: Elim Community Hall.
There will be opportunities for photographs and interviews.
