BO-KAAP CULTURAL AND HERITAGE GATEWAY

History:
Year Event

The Bo-Kaap Cultural and Heritage Gateway is a community based Non-Profit Organisation (074-991-NPO) that aims to empower the community through skills development and job creation, using local talent and government and non-government resources.

The vibrant and colourful community of Bo-Kaap is passionate and proud of their history and legacy, and is one of South Africa?s prized cultural and heritage gems.

Apartheid placed this community at a disadvantage because of their colour. They however fought the system to achieve Freedom and Democracy with the rest of South Africa. They maintained their strong values and identities as passed down by their fore-fathers through the decades of Slavery and then Apartheid, to emerge as a people strong in Faith and rich in Culture.

The Bo-Kaap is where internationals and locals experience the sights, sounds and tastes of the descendants of slaves from the East Indies, India and Africa. Traditional crafts, the famous Cape Malay cuisine and music, are amongst the offerings to be had here.

This project was a dream of a group of dynamic previously disadvantaged women wanting to create employment through home industries, markets, traditional food experiences and cultural events in the Bo-Kaap, empowering in particular, women and youth.

A monthly Food and Craft Market , working with the FNB Community Outreach Programme, ?ABSA Small Business Development to facilitate small business courses, encouraging learnerships and employment with the local private sector, is proof that this project is a serious commitment to the community of Bo-Kaap.

The BO-KAAP CULTURAL & HERITAGE GATEWAY's convenors must be congratulated for hosting an excellent monthly Bo-Kaap Food/Craft Market Day on Sat, 6 March 2010 at the Schotschekloof Civic Centre in Bo-Kaap with idea filled programme of events. Looking forward to the next monthly Village Market Day in this 'Upper Town' cultural enclave. Much to offer locals, accidental visitors and tourists such as the memorable 'Living History corner'' by elders in the community.

This is a splendid venture to showcase the rich foodways of the descendant communities of slaves and exiles at the Cape

Trust that this "living traditions' food market event will become a permanent feature of the Food & Cuisine Heritage trail of the Inner City .... with Bo-Kaap or Upper Town as the cultural cradle of Muslims at the Cape.

This Gateway project must, also, be a comunity-driven skills' transfer venture whereby the art of food preparations beyond the "eye of the recipe books" be passed on to the 'MIXIT generation' to ensure the survival of Cape Malay cuisine as part of the diverse regional food traditions across the Western Cape.

May your 'demonstration team of young cultural cuisine cooks' become the "living human treasures" of Upper Town above city lights of Signal Hill.
