KZN Museum celebrated Africa Day at the Museum on the 31 May at a joyous and colourful celebration of diversity. The learners came dressed up in traditional clothes and sang and danced and filled the hall with an air of festivity. Primary schools were invited to participate in a programme at the Museum to celebrate Africa Day which is observed throughout Africa on the 25th of May annually. South Africa’s Theme for 2019 edition was “Celebrating 25 Years of Democracy”.  Primary schools were identified as target audience and were requested to create work that represent democracy to them. The creations were in the form of poetry, poster presentations, drama or any other art form which the school could choose. Learners were most creative in their presentations and really represented their schools very well!
