October 02, 2014

Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre in Qunu, a second component of Nelson Mandela Museum will be buzzing with learners from nine provinces of South Africa for the annual Winter School Camp organised and facilitated by the Nelson Mandela Museum.

The camp will resume on the 5th – 10th October at the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage centre in Qunu.    

 

Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre in Qunu, is a location that forms part of the humble beginnings of Nelson Mandela is an epitome of President Nelson Mandela’s vision of nurturing young minds to embrace and defend the gains of liberty through dialogue and tolerance. Identified learners will come from diverse demographics of South Africa.

The Nelson Mandela Museum Winter School camp program seeks to encourage participants to understand the footprints of President Nelson Mandela so as to reflect on their own identities. Participants will further be inspired to champion values of Nelson Mandela using various art forms. The camp activities will be made up of Music and Dance, Visual Art, Poetry and Creative Writing, Oral History and Research, Drama, Storytelling and debate.

Acting C.E.O Dr. Noel Solani believe youth camps organised and hosted by the museum play a pivotal role in heritage and conservation of President Nelson Mandela’s legacy.

“It is in the interest of Nelson Mandela Museum, Department of Arts and Culture and the people of South Africa to endeavour its energies in preservation of inheritance left to the people of South Africa by our patron (President Nelson Mandela) and to inculcate it to the current generation,” said Dr Solani.

“The youth camps we host in Qunu, a place close to President Nelson Mandela have yielded positive outcomes. We have seen a number of participants reaching their ambitions of attaining their dreams and aspirations at institutions of learning, while others have become business expertise in art and visual industry,” said Education & Material development Manager Pumeza Mandela.
