Joburg's Apartheid Museum to host new UN Day exhibition

Brand South Africa and the United Nations will host a six-month exhibit at the Apartheid Musuem from 19 October 2017 to 31 April 2018.

The exhibit will highlight the contribution the UN made to South Africa's struggle for freedom, which was one of the 51 founding members of the UN in 1945. 

Since then, the global organisation has grown to 193 member states. In South Africa, the UN is committed to enhancing the performance and impact of the UN system in contributing to the development of the country.

Beyond educating South Africans and visitors about the role the UN played in the fight against Apartheid during the six-month exhibit, the audio-visual exhibit will travel to other countries.

Brand South Africa's general manager Mpumi Mabuza sees this as an opportunity for the marketing agency to be a part of preserving the memory of Apartheid for historical purposes.

"It is, imperative that South Africans are reminded that the country’s freedom is attributed to many other African nations whose role in supporting South Africa through its dark days led towards its found liberation; we look forward to the exhibition and call on all citizens to come share and engage,” says Mabuza.
