INVITATION: Exhibitions in the Classroom workshop for educators

SAHA would like to invite Grade 10 - 12 history educators to participate in a workshop on using SAHA's Exhibition in the Classroom booklets to commemorate key dates in in the South African calendar with their learners.

Exhibitions in the classroom booklet: Hlanganani Basebenzi

These booklets are based on three SAHA's portable exhibition kits, in which artefacts from SAHA's archives provide a lens into the various ways in which women, workers and young people struggled against apartheid, and for democracy in South Africa:

Women hold up half the sky: commemorating women in the struggle

The Future is Ours: Commemorating Youth in the Struggle

Hlanganani Basebenzi: Commemorating South Africa's Labour Movement

Each Exhibition in the Classroom booklet can be used (along with either the related physical exhibition kit or virtual exhibition) by schools interested in hosting commemorative events such as:

  • International Women's Day - 8 March
  • South African Human Rights Day - 21 March
  • South African Women's Day - 9 August
  • Worker's Day - 1 May
  • International Human Rights Day - 10 December

This workshop will take place in the Women's Jail at Constitution Hill on 1 July 2014 from 10h00 - 15h00.

There is no cost for participating in this project for the educators.

If you would like to RSVP to participate in this event, please contact SAHA on 011 7182560 or info@saha.org.za by Monday 23 June 2014.
