Exile Heritage provides an organized, focused timeline for communities, schools and universities of the key information on activities that granted us our freedom through a synthesis of media such as books, academic papers, lectures, collections, videos and films, theatre plays and dance choreographies and music productions, testimonies, living memory and research, throwing a spotlight on the leading personalities and milestones, will be a ground-breaking formatting of information to begin addressing this gap.

Exile Heritage is a living transfer of knowledge, skills and know-how. It is not a collection, conservation and study of objects as in museum shows. It is a living heritage communicating the significance and meaning of our exile heritage to current and future generations through education and raising awareness.

The thematic narratives of our Exile Heritage include historical events, historical characters, liberation heritage and cultural activism weave a comprehensive narrative around an international movement of solidarity that brought the long and lasting celebration of democracy we celebrate today.

The role of cultural activism is an anchor experience for the national celebration of 30 years of democracy in 2024. Through our exile heritage we are aiming at inclusivity of stakeholders and projects. 

Together we may provide the resources, exhibition, and participant experience to be a catalyst for change primarily for local disadvantaged learners or creative entrepreneurs in the heritage sector to get the know-how from the international exposure that the exiles have fostered. The community partners data base of our NPC and sister programme, community arts centres, music academies, music studios, heritage programmes nationwide.

International co-operation is directly empowering to the national call for long-term economic emancipation for all. Cultural exchange and international awareness is a two-way street. Whilst South Africans may be aware of the great friendships created abroad during the fight for democracy, the international audiences may also be aware of the on-going need for these friendships, co-operations, and support. Empowering initiatives in the cultural and heritage sector from the hosting of international festivals to Grammy awards abroad, international co-operation is at the centre.   

Long-term economic benefits include an increase in Culture Tourism.  New markets such as music, books and resources produced by the exiles can be greatly enhanced, whilst opening contacts for more exchange around creative products.

Skills development and transfer is primarily an educative resource with the long-term intension of know-how, skills transfer and economic stimulus. The trainee and employment candidates will be guided in skills transfer, especially with the site visits, recording and capture of sites in the SADEC region and around our country.

Be the change you want to see and join us now. #togetherwearestrong
