Learners at Ohlange High School showcase their culture

by in Culture & Heritage

These videos were recorded at Ohlange High School as part of a community outreach project run by the Cultural and Heritage Tourism Programme at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Most of the learners are part of the ‘Tourism Club’, an extra-curricular programme for learners who are interested in heritage and tourism. The initial videos were recorded in preparation for Tourism Month and Heritage Day in August/September 2012. Learners were encouraged to showcase their artistic performance talents and knowledge about traditional customary practices and Zulu heritage. Most of the performances were not staged or rehearsed but spontaneously recorded. They provide a glimpse into these young peoples’ lives and their understanding of traditional culture and heritage.
