LOCATION

The museum is situated in the middle of the houses, in Rockville, just 200 meters from Regina Mundi. Regina Mundi played a pivotal role in the struggle against apartheid in the second half of the 20th century. Since political meetings in most public places were banned, the church became the main place where Soweto people could meet and discuss. Even funerals often ended up as political meetings. For this reason, Regina Mundi earned the reputation of being one of the main centres of anti-apartheid activism in the province of Gauteng. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings were held in the church from 1995 to 1998, presided over by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. 

Take a look at where the museum began. Locals were given space to leave their mark, big or small. More than a 100 people, including visual artists contributed to the creation of this beacon of inspiration, thus, the museum is also a platform for artists to showcase their work inside the museum and around neighboring walls. Moreover, the museum offers art lessons to local people. Most materials used to create the museum are up-cycled.
