World of NR Mandela’s dreams; Introspection and reflection

December 04, 2016

NELSON MANDELA MUSEUM PRESENTS A COLLOQUIUM TO MARK THE 3RD ANNIVERSARY FOR THE PASSING ON OF NELSON MANDELA

In dedicating 5 December, a day Nelson Mandela passed on, to his memory, is to affirm his place in the South African historical narrative, and the world. Nelson Mandela Museum strives to promote the ideals of non-racialism, non-sexism, peace, unity human rights and democracy that Nelson Mandela championed right through his life. These are the ideals that he was prepared to die for.

Most importantly, Nelson Mandela Museum council reminds the world that the struggle to achieve all the objectives of the liberation struggle is a daily struggle. For the Nelson Mandela Museum and Department of Arts and Culture, the passing on of the former President, 36 months ago, presents a profound opportunity and challenge to reposition itself (Nelson Mandela Museum) as a museum for Social Dialogue & Change, Knowledge Production and to encourage people of the world to live and preserve the Legacy and Values of Nelson Mandela.

In advancing its course, Nelson Mandela Museum and the Department of Arts and Culture will host a Colloquium featuring prominent speakers who will be doing an introspection & reflection on a ‘World of Nelson Mandela’s Dream’. Advocate George Bizos, Ms Sophie De Bruyn (anti-apartheid activist), Dr Somadoda Fikeni will be giving Umrabulo (a Knowledge Sharing) while the Eastern Cape Premier Phumulo Masualle will become a respondent.

The Colloquium is held under the theme called ‘World of Nelson Mandela’s dream’: Introspection & reflection.
The Colloquium will take place on the 05th of December at the Nelson Mandela Museum Bhunga Building site in Mthatha. The 05th of December the programme will kick start with an international message of peace, followed at by lighting of 95 candles at 12h00 and later by the release of white doves. The 95 candles resemble the life and times of President Nelson Mandela.

Nelson Mandela Museum encourages 5Km Peace Walk participants to wear white gear to symbolise peace.
