The District Six Museum was founded in 1989 and the museum in 1994, as a memorial to the forced movement of 60,000 inhabitants of various races in District Six during Apartheid in South Africa in the 1970s.
The museum offers programs for current inhabitants to develop the district. The museum is dedicated to the construction of houses, environmental planning, and the organization of activities in the fields of music, literature, and art, with the active involvement of the public. The museum’s goal is to join people into a community where there is respect for dignity, identity and the co-existence of different races.
