KHULUMANI SUPPORT GROUP: USING ART-MAKING AND ORAL NARRATIVE TO ADDRESS LAND DISPOSSESSION, POPULAR RESISTANCE AND RESTITUTION

  • Judy Seidman Khulumani Support Group

Abstract

The Khulumani Support Group has developed a workshop process that integrates art-making (drawing and painting) with oral narrative, so that participants explore and discuss their experiences, ideas and understanding of events that shape their lives, unlock the stories of people who have been ‘forgotten’ in our current discourse around the struggle for a united, democratic and non-racial South Africa.

The stories that emerge from this process provide a wealth of insights into issues of land dispossession, resistance and restitution; and how we address land issues today.
