The Cape Town Museum of Childhood joined this year’s Infecting the City Public Arts Festival with a statement piece showcasing more than 100 headline posters that relate to the violence against children in Cape Town.

The museum’s statement piece took place along Government Avenue and Wale Street in the Cape Town city centre on Thursday 21 November. Members of the public were invited to collect a poster and to stand in solidarity with the cause.

Participants included early childhood development teachers and principals from Delft, Bonteheuwel, Grassy Park and Wesbank, and representatives from various non-profit organisations such as The Justice Desk, Inclusive Education, Breadline Africa, SAEP, Philisa Abafazi Bethu and Little Lions Child Coaching, to name a few.

Over the past year, the museum has been collecting newspaper headline posters that relate to state of children in Cape Town.

“Every day we pass these posters but they no longer impact us,” says Chanel Fredericks, event organiser at the Cape Town Museum of Childhood. “We have become okay with Cape Town being a dangerous place for children.”

According to the latest Child Gauge Survey, the national child murder rate is 4.3 murders per 100 000 children and the rape rate for children is 83 rapes per 100 000 children.

Through exhibiting the collection of posters, the museum wanted to remind the public of their accountability to the safety of children. In addition to this, the museum hoped to get the public thinking about what they can do to make Cape Town a safer place for children.

The statement piece was well supported and well received by pedestrians passing by.

The museum located in Rondebosch provides an institution for the heritage, documentation, memory, oral history, research, and interpretation of childhood. It houses a national collection of childhood-related exhibitions. It aims to capture the heritage of childhood and the role that children play in society. This is done through documenting, studying and interpreting childhood by creating an interactive space that allows children, families and communities to celebrate childhood, to gain insights into childhood and to learn about childhood heritage.
