Despite the negative connotations that the words ‘coloured identity’ conjure, the artists exhibiting at Eclectica have chosen to celebrate
this culture with the intent of creating a positive awareness of its diversity. This exhibition hopes to instill and reinforce positivity towards change in our coloured community.
We wish to highlight the rich contributions of coloured people, both culturally and politically. The contributions to culture have been diverse and unique across language, music, theatre, literature, the arts and food! In terms of politics, especially in the Western and Eastern Cape, the legacy is long and impactful with many heroes, luminaries, leaders and movements. ‘Coloureds’ have and continue to make an enormous
contribution to South Africa.
The exhibition opens Thursday, 06 June 2019, 18h00 - 21h00 @ 69 Burg Street, Cape Town.
