Building a museum


Guests : Patric Tariq Mellet                 Angus Leendertz                  The first meeting of the Camissa Museum took the shape of a workshop for about 15 museologists,curators,cultural activists,artists and tour guides and Patric talked about the 7 steps which demonstrate the rich history of the peopling of the Cape.The workshop was vibrant and will be followed up with the next workshop on Saturday at the Castle. This process will lead to the first temporary exhibition launching the Camissa Museum in January 2020 which will then lead to the establishment of a permanent museum in ctn on the origins of Cape Society smashing the colonial myths and celebrating the rich diversity of origins including slavery.We will focus on local descendants of this history of more than 150 genetic tributaries and their achievements eg Neville Alexander’s African slave roots. As an architect/curator/anti-apartheid activist ,my projects follow the theme of repurposing sites of trauma with educational museum exhibitions.
