• The Community Survey

    The Community Survey project focused on conducting life history interviews and re-connecting with a broader range of ex-residents who are either returning to District Six, those who have chosen not to return, and those who are currently living in the area. The aim was to understand the challenges of the restitution process for ex-residents and how the District Six community is able to impact on as well as benefit from the work of the Museum. A number of survey questionnaires were completed by Seven Steps Members, and focus groups as well as individual life history interviews were conducted. Phase two of the project included a number of oral history interviews with ex-residents from Horstley and the Cross Street area. We were able to conduct workshops with a small cluster of ex-residents from Horstley Street in particular: mapping the street, families, neighbours and landmarks that made up this small community.
