Workshops to prepare the Young Curators took the form of a series of Saturday Masterclasses with overall project facilitation by artist Scott E Williams.
Participants learned how to use photography, collage and design to produce wheatpaste artworks to illustrate the theme of Images of Displacement. Works were produced in collaboration with ex- residents of District Six and others who have experienced forced relocation or displacement. The artworks of the Giemba Collective were produced as part of a District Six Museum ‘Memory Design Lab’ approach with ex-residents and storytellers for inter-generational conversation.
