The MTN SA Foundation, in partnership with Durban-based non-profit organisation: Amazwi Abesifazane – Voices of Women Museum (VoWM), will be hosting an art exhibition dubbed Dreams and Muti Magic,as part of its community outreach programme and contribution to social dialogue.
The exhibition is open to the public from Thursday, 30 August.
The Dreams and Muti Magic references the exhibition, Dreams, Wishes and Expectations held in 2017 by the Voices of Women Museum. The visual conversations considered the possibility of ‘dreams’ embedded in the many stories of the Museum’s Collection. These dreams are associated with wishes and expectations for a better present and future.
To date the VoWM has archived and displayed over 3000 embroideries narrating these stories.
Says Kusile Mthunzi-Hairwadzi, General Manager of MTN SA Foundation: “We are excited to host this important exhibition which gives women a platform to tell their stories and contribute to social discourse. Art has played a crucial role as the vehicle of resistance to institutionalized segregation in the past, and we believe that it has a role to play as a conduit for social cohesion and community upliftment.”
Muthunzi-Hairwadzi adds, “We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Amazwi Abesifazane and believe that working as a collective we can unlock entrepreneurial potential in the province, while giving women the platform to document their stories.”
