• Research

    Research is at the heart of the Museum and occurs in different forms and settings. It is present through a memory methodology that uses mapping, oral history and action research approaches to facilitate reunions, exhibition, education and intergenerational programmes with District Sixers, Capetonians and young people. It is not only a means to deepen knowledge about District Six, but is important in generating action and building sustainable public participation and engagement with the legacy of District Six.
