Named after Nelson exhibition launch, 2024.04.25, Houghton: [Set of 265 Still images]

A team of design researchers at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom in collaboration with Celeste Mckenzie, creative industries practitioners and heritage specialists in South Africa used graphic heritage as a lens to find out how much or how little information there is about Madiba in six locations named after him in the Gauteng Province. Through graphic heritage, the exhibition reveals as much about absence as it does about presence. It straddles the established but contested domain of heritage interpretation, presentation, and representation.

The exhibition is designed to inspire public engagement with its content and encourage visitors to contribute their thoughts, feelings, and observations to eventually shape the exhibition's public image. The case study locations are colour-coded to match the unique colours of the South African national flag.

100 Great African Kings and Queens (Volume 1)

100 Great African Kings and Queens is a fascinating journey that tracks the sands of civilization. Through the eyes of the reign of these illustrious African monarchs, a fascinating portion of world history is uncovered. Volume one is the first 10 of 100 . They range from Khufu, the father of the pyramids to Makeda, the magnificent Queen of Sheba. Then there is Hannibal of Tunisia who taught the Roman Empire the meaning of fear. The pilgrimage to Mecca of Emperor Mansa Musa of Mali (who lays claim to the title of the richest man who ever lived - would be worth 400 billion dollars today) is among the most spectacular events of all time. Not to be forgotten are Cleopatra of Egypt and freedom fighters like Nzinga of Matamba, as well as Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana.
