Far from the staid image many people may have of museums, Durban Local History Museums (DLHM) are constantly innovating the way in which they communicate with the public. Technology, whether it’s in the form of social media, new ways of archiving materials, or finding ways to collate information not previously documented, forms a very important part of the local history museums’ work. One such technology-driven project is the Durban Liberation Heritage Route which uses GPS mapping to pinpoint the various locations that make up the route.
To further encourage interaction with this very important project, DLHM is inviting the public to attend a seminar next Wednesday, the 25th April. The Liberation Heritage Route Seminar will take place at the Natural Science Museum Research Centre between 09h00 and 13h00.
