The Neo-Liberal erasure of Heritage: Why the “Heritage vs ‘Development’” Debate is an Important One, Brindley Fortuin

Cape Town has come under a lot of fire with various civic associations and organisations speaking out against gentrification of the Central Business District (CBD) and its surrounding areas. One of the major challenges posed by gentrification is the very nostalgic sense of displacement of Black, Coloured working class people from their homes and communities.

In Between Spaces: Reflecting on the 2018 Popular Education Network Conference, Lebogang Maragelo

“I’m really starting to enjoy this conference, and it isn’t for the reasons I had foreseen”, these were the words of my deeply reflective colleague a few hours into our second day at the 2018 Popular Education Network (PEN) Conference. She didn't need to explain any further than that single sentence because I understood her as soon as she said it. Her comment spoke to what we have come to call the ‘in between spaces’. Before I indulge you further on what she meant, I will tell you a little bit about what we were doing at Goedgedacht Farm for two nights in the middle of winter.

Towards the Socially Engineered, Brindley Fortuin

“The Social Infrastructures course has been incredibly eye opening for me. From the interactive class sessions to the invigorating off campus classes. I consider every experience I’ve undergone in this course to be incredibly valuable. We’ve dived into the complexities around the notion of community and are currently interrogating the role of perspectives in shaping our beliefs and outlooks on certain things. I am glad that I chose the course and I can’t think of a better way to have spent my June/July period... This has truly been unforgettable.” - Daniel Okoh
