An Evening of Sartorial Splendour

Friday 20 June at 18h30 | Wits Arts Museum (WAM) Forecourt
Wits Arts Museum, Corner Berta & Jorissen Streets, Braamfontein
Free

This special event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Ngezinyawo – Migrant Journeys, which coincides with the celebration of 20 years of democracy in South Africa.

However, the issues surrounding migrants and migrancy that are addressed in this exhibition are part of a nearly 200 year history that continues to profoundly affect our society today. Life circumstances of migrant workers and their families, xenophobic violence and recent upheavals in the mining sector (culminating in the Marikana massacre) are just a few of the headline issues that confront contemporary South African society.  

This particular event coincides with International Refugee Day and is the reason WAM has partnered with IFAS and the African Diaspora Forum (ADF) to encourage social cohesion in bringing the broader migrant community together and to introduce the Wits Art Museum to a wider constituency.
