The CP Nel Museum Board of Trustees has resolved the following in a meeting held 19 August 2021:
•To open a room called “Local Arts Gallery” for local artists to showcase their artworks at the Museum, this is to support, promote and give more exposure to the Oudtshoorn artists who are struggling to promote their work. Interested artists can attend a meeting scheduled on the 31st of August 2021 at 11H00 to meet and discuss the implementation of this resolution.
•Donated seashells to the Diaz Museum in Mosselbay at their shell Museum.
•Partnered with the Nelson Mandela Museum in the Eastern Cape, the Nelson Mandela Museum will donate Nelson Mandela Exhibitions to be displayed at the Museum and these exhibitions are also linked to our curriculum-based educational program that we deliver at schools for Grade 4 and 6 to their history subject and this will be more practical to learners who visits the Museum.
Also, the Board is busy looking ways to put Old Coloured College exhibitions inside the main building to form part of the Museum tour and this will be finalized in the next meeting.
