The Homecoming Centre is an extension of the District Six Museum, functioning as a space for education, exhibition and events. The centre now includes the former Fugard Theatre building.
A salon, in true African spirit, is a gathering place for culture, storytelling, and community togetherness. The Cape Town Homecoming Centre is pleased to present a specially curated exhibition and immersive journey by Beathur Mgoza Baker and Sara Bint Moneer Khan that unites diverse cultures from across the African continent through visual art in our home - a site of hope, remembrance, and belonging.
This exhibition and accompanying cultural program, explores critical questions through the work of contemporary visual artists, filmmakers, cultural thinkers, and performers, creates a space for dialogue and sharing at a time when our country is struggling to provide Africans with a sense of belonging – bringing them together as a community at the salon.
At the Homecoming Centre, a center of cultural pride and dignity, we encourage audiences to explore this unique gathering place of memory, beauty, creativity, and imagination that exposes ideas and art from throughout the African continent. The exhibition responds to the historical space and symbolic role of District Six as a unique place of integration, storytelling and negating difference to enable belonging.
