Exploring Madiba's Graphic Heritage, 2023.03.03, Houghton: [Set of 149 Still images]

Nelson Mandela continues to be memorialised in different ways all over the world. For this reason, the workshop shared new insights from the Memorialising Mandela in the Metropolis project at Loughborough University that explores the relationship between toponymy, graphic images, cultural heritage, and place making, in locations named after Madiba. Perspectives from academia, Nelson Mandela Foundation, creative industries, and delegate participation, were synthesised in the context of research undertaken in South Africa, Brazil, and United Kingdom. The workshop ended with a session on knowledge exchange and research opportunities for future collaboration.

"Named after Nelson" exhibition launch, 2024.04.25, Houghton: [Set of 265 Still images]

A team of design researchers at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom in collaboration with Celeste Mckenzie, creative industries practitioners and heritage specialists in South Africa used graphic heritage as a lens to find out how much or how little information there is about Madiba in six locations named after him in the Gauteng Province. Through graphic heritage, the exhibition reveals as much about absence as it does about presence. It straddles the established but contested domain of heritage interpretation, presentation, and representation.

The exhibition is designed to inspire public engagement with its content and encourage visitors to contribute their thoughts, feelings, and observations to eventually shape the exhibition's public image. The case study locations are colour-coded to match the unique colours of the South African national flag.

Event organised by the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) to commemorate Mahlangu v Minister of Labour court case, 2021.11.04, Houghton: [Set of 28 Still images]

The Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) organised an event to commemorate Mahlangu v Minister of Labour court case. In Mahlangu v Minister of Labour, the Court declared the constitutional invalidity of section 1(xix)(v) of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act 130 of 1993 (COIDA), which excluded domestic workers employed in private households from the definition of "employee", thus precluding them from claiming from the Compensation Fund for work-related injuries, illness or death. Significantly, the Court also ruled that the order of constitutional invalidity is to have immediate and retrospective effect from 27 April 1994, which means domestic workers and dependants who have experienced work-related injuries, diseases or death as far back as 27 April 1994 are also able to submit claims.
