Stellenbosch Civic, Concert at Zola Centre, 1987. Silkscreen poster. Place of production and printing unknown. Artist(s) unknown. Under the State of Emergency, organisations found new ways of avoiding the ban on public meetings through events like concerts and other cultural occasions. Apart from creating platforms for the expression of people’s culture, such events also created opportunities for speakers from the liberation movement to reach audiences. Collection: CHR/UWC-Robben Island Museum Mayibuye Archives

The CHR fellowship programme will continue in 2022 through online platforms and, where permitted, limited live events hosted in compliance with COVID-19 protocols. Please follow our events page for updates about events.
