Celebrating Childhood in Gouda - Community Outreach
The Cape Town Museum of Childhood hosted a celebration of childhood with the community of Gouda. The celebration took place on 02 March 2018 at the Gouda Community Library. Community members were invited to join in on the celebration where everyone listened to older community members share their childhood stories about growing up in Gouda. In addition to this, the museum invited the public to visit the Gouda Community Library where we also presented a pop-up exhibition called “This is me- A day in my life”, about a day in the life of a child growing up in South Africa. This exhibition remained at the library from 2 March until 9 March 2018. We encouraged everyone, young and old to visit the exhibition.
