More than just a sports ground

A Durban group is using the city’s cultural heritage to bring recognition to a neglected history and at the same time help forge a post-merger institutional identity.

In conjunction with South African History Online (SAHO), the DUT last year launched a community research initiative called the Rocs (Research Of Currie’s and Surrounds) Project. It covers an area — referred to as the Currie’s Fountain Precinct — roughly 1,5 kilometres in diameter, bordered by Greyville Racecourse to the north, Grey Street to the east, Berea Road to the south and Botanic Gardens Road to the west. The area closely mirrors the boundaries established by the City Planning authorities for the Warwick Junction Precinct which is currently in the planning stages. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
