The Political Prisoners of South Africa Documentation Project is now a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization!! This means that contributions to the Documentation Project, via Fractured Atlas, are tax deductible. There is more information below, and on our sponsored project page about how one can make a contribution.
The Political Prisoners of South Africa Documentation Project involves collecting, archiving, and sharing materials from the Bracelet Program.
Collecting – Although we have substantial information already, there are gaps. While we have biographical information about most prisoners before they were sentenced, we don’t have updates in terms of what happened to them after they were released. This material must be gathered.
Archiving – Relevant archives (online and physical) must be identified and agreements must be established regarding the use the materials.
Sharing – The Documentation Project will share materials in a variety of ways; online, in archives, via book form, in exhibits, and via a collaborative participatory mural project. The Mural Project is perhaps the most ambitious initiative. It involves collaborative learning and participatory creative expression in three cities/countries; Cape Town, South Africa, Windhoek, Namibia, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. The target group for this initiative is youth, and will involve mural artists, educators, community youth groups, university students, and other resource people in each country.
All of these wonderful activities take resources! We need your support to make these goals a reality. Your contribution is truly essential at this juncture. Won’t you consider making a tax-deductible contribution?
