Media Alert: New Stellenbosch Local History Exhibition to Be Opened By Minister
Tomorrow, 21 October 2015, Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais, will officially open the new exhibition, “Stellenbosch and its people” at the Stellenbosch Museum.
The development of the residents, colonisation and the establishment of Stellenbosch as a town forms part of the exhibition. Exhibiting local histories is significant in transforming museums into meaningful spaces for local residents. Through the exhibition, local residents will gain insight into where they come from, understand more of their town, their identity and how the past has shaped the present. Local histories reflect the lives of ordinary people and help to create a socially inclusive society.
