Minister Marais Officially Rolls Out Oral History Initiative in Gouda
On Monday, 18 April 2016, the Western Cape Minister of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais, will officially roll out the Oral History Initiative in Gouda in the Drakenstein Municipality. Launched in December 2015, 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, including sports legends, a chance to 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.
