Cape Town Museum is a new provincial museum that will explore Cape Town as a dynamic network of people, processes and places that extend beyond the official boundaries of the city. The museum aims to be an inclusive public space that:

  • Provides a platform to address social, economic and environmental concerns.
  • Plays an important role in building a culture of active citizenship, reflecting on collective identities, fostering respect for human rights and gender equality, and contributing to social inclusion and cohesion.

Although the museum does not yet occupy a physical building, it is using its website as a virtual museum space and creating a physical presence through its network of partners and stakeholders.

Our first engagement on social inclusion will take place on 27th July 2018 in partnership with Activate! and Africa Unite. Through this engagement we would like to understand which stakeholder networks exist in Cape Town, how we can connect and how we might work together. We would like to explore how the Cape Town Museum can contribute to bridging divides within, and across, communities, and provide a public space for social inclusion initiatives.

We invite you to become part of the Cape Town Museum network.
