“It is an important month to promote a museum-going culture in South Africa. It is also an opportune moment to give communities the power to write their history and to re-imagine their own heritage at a time where culture is dynamic and constantly changing," Sathekge continued.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their picnic blankets, cushions, and chairs to enjoy the activities of the day in a relaxed environment.

Visitors are also encouraged to use Uber as parking is limited.

The event will take place on 28 May at 193 Rosettenville Road, La Rochelle, Johannesburg. It is free to the public, but visitors will need to register here to redeem their free ticket.
