Youth Connect from Lwandle participated in a play at the District Six Museum on Saturday 27 April.

The production, Boxes, is a 30-minute social justice project devised by award-winning playwrights Neil Coppen and Ameera Conrad as well as journalist Daneel Knoetze and performers Quanita Adams and Mark Elderkin.

The project draws from a range of research-based, verbatim and documentary theatre methodologies to explore a myriad of perspectives and insights into urban land justice issues occurring across Cape Town.

Youth Connect, an organisation which hosts dialogues at the Lwandle Migrant Labour Museum, were invited to participate as the community has experienced illegal land invasion. The engagements focused on what youths can do to change their situation in this day and age.

Patrons and staff of the District Six Museum have visited Lwandle Museum and participated in Youth Connect events in the past.
