Over 3 years now the project has been inviting people to share their stories and documenting these in short youtube videos and longer podcasts. As we listen to these stories we are able to reflect on our history and have a better understanding of recent past and celebrate some of the achievements of our young democracy, and examine some of our short comings as a nation. It is hoped that this project in some small way will contribute to creating better understanding and to help address issues around transformation, race relations, gender parity, economic inequality, xenophobia, LGBT rights and the natural environment. A further aim is that these stories inspire us to dream of and build a South Africa we want, and reaffirm our commitment to the belief that South Africa belongs to all who live in it.
This project has won the Western Cape cultural award for most innovative heritage project. Shehnaz Cassim Moosa won the 2019 volunteer of the year awarded by the Western Cape government. The videos are being used in installations by a Slave church museum. And this is where we would like to grow and develop further.
