About the event:
Togetherheid Heroes Expo
In addressing and challenging the negative stereotypes associated with people living on the Cape Flats and surrounds, “Togetherheid” aims to highlight the amazing people from our marginalised communities, which make up the greater Cape Town region, often barred from the view of affluent Capetonians and tourists.
The legacy of Apartheid spatial planning is still endemic and active in the city and our communities, since being forcibly removed to the wastelands of Cape Town in the 1960’s under Apartheid law. This social construct has created an almost permanent negative stereotype of our people, inheriting a forced life of disruption, exclusion, crime and dehumanising social ills, which till today, grapples our people more than 60 years on.
“Togetherheid” redresses how we as communities on the peripheries of Cape Town are perceived, by promoting local heroes from our marginalised communities who strive to achieve their rightful place as the leaders of tomorrow.
