The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) is inviting all community members of Wentworth, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa to join a Wentworth Social History Project Community Engagement Meeting to be held on Saturday, 26 November 2022 at 9:00.

The main aim of the meeting is to formally introduce the project and team to the community of Wentworth and to solicit participation in the project by members of the community.

This is your project, therefore we would like to engage with you (the community) on the best ways to proceed with the project and to develop a long-term plan for the project with the community.

The Wentworth Social History Project research team is using interviews with past and current residents of Wentworth to develop a social history of the community from its inception in the late 1950s to the present.

The engagement will be both in-person and virtual (online). The link for those who are unable to attend in-person will be distributed in due course.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to write your own history. Only space for 100 people

For those who will attend in-person please RSVP to: Theresa Saber – 0735760170; or Darian Smith – 068480217
