Or not to be at the Theatre on the Square

18 February 2020 - 29 February 2020

OR NOT TO BE… How Shakespear could change your death!! 

What if Shakespeare knew something about death that we don't?

New York based actor, playwright, and scholar, SIMON FORTIN, weaves death speeches from Shakespeare, with his own stories of dying on stage. One of these stories tells of his “death scene” in the American TV series SEX & The CITY, and how that experience would change the course of his life. Join us at the Theatre on the Square from 18 to 29 February 2019. #sandtoncentral #eventsinsandtoncentral #theatreonthesquare #theatre #theatrelovers #nelsonmandelasquare 

Through this highly entertaining evening, Fortin invites Shakespeare to teach us how we might approach mortality in new and creative ways.

Despite its topic, this show is funny, moving and uplifting.

Mandela, My Life: The Official Exhibition

21 February 2020 - 20 July 2020

The Nelson Mandela Foundation in collaboration with Richmark Holdings and in partnership with TEG Live is proud to bring to South Africa, a world class exhibition that will commemorate, illuminate and most importantly give a glimpse into the extraordinary personal life of Nelson Mandela.

The travelling exhibition recently returned from Australia and New Zealand will be showcased for the first time in South Africa hosted at the Nelson Mandela Square from the 21st February to the 20 July 2020.

Mandela, My Life: The Official Exhibition will feature the most comprehensive collection of original artefacts, documents, personal items and artworks. With over 200 artefacts from The Nelson Mandela Foundation and Richmark Holdings private collection, the exhibition has been curated chronologically across 10 galleries and guides visitors through an emotive journey that is multi-sensory, collections rich and interactive.

“We invite the public to come experience the life and times of Nelson Mandela in its most real form, being artefacts. We are proud to be bringing this exhibition in association with Richmark Holdings and TEG Live” Sello Hatang, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

Through a newly created cinematic experience, GALLERY 1 invites visitors to feel the power and emotion of one of the most dramatic and significant moments of Mandela's life – the moment he puts apartheid on trial. Visitors will experience the original sound recording of Nelson Mandela's Rivonia Trial speech in 1964, accompanied by a powerful and immersive new film piece placing visitors in the courtroom as he delivers his speech.

In GALLERY 2 visitors explore Mandela's family and journey from child to man through a spectacular seven-metre-long scenic projection wall of animations and landscapes. Elements of Mandela’s childhood will be brought to life in an audio-visual piece using his own words and images of his childhood homes in the Transkei to animate his memories of some of the most formative events and influences on his young life.

GALLERY 3 explores how and why certain influences shaped a young Mandela with original objects, film and documents enabling visitors to delve into the early life of Mandela as he established himself in Johannesburg. Personal items include photographs of Mandela with his first wife Evelyn and their children, and his second marriage to Winnie. This gallery also examines a history of apartheid and the systems of 'apartness' that left a lasting impression on Mandela and motivated his political activism.

GALLERY 4 provides an insight into the covert nature of Mandela's daily existence and activities during his period of underground operations when Mandela was dubbed the Black Pimpernel. The earliest known film footage of Mandela during a break in the Treason Trial will be displayed in this gallery. Mandela was one of 156 defendants, along with members of all other anti- apartheid movements, in a trial that was designed to dismantle the People’s Congress Alliance and attack the Freedom Charter.

Comprised of small cell-like rooms, based on Mandela's time in prison including at Robben Island, GALLERY 5 explores aspects of Mandela's life in prison. Film and photographs of the isolated prison at Robben Island set the scene; letters between Mandela and his family and audio of Mandela personally recounting his experiences provide an insight into the emotional impact of his long imprisonment. There is also material depicting the growth of the global campaign for his release and an exclusive interview with Mandela's last prison guard featured in this rich gallery.

Walking into GALLERY 6, visitors will be able to see and hear the events of Mandela’s first day of freedom on 11 February 1990 when he was released from Victor Verster prison. A wall of film, images and sound will show the progression of Mandela from that very first day, to his election and inauguration as South Africa’s first democratically elected President. Objects on display include a replica of the gold Parker pen with which Mandela signed the interim constitution of 1993; a replica of the Nobel Peace Prize Mandela and FW de Klerk received for peaceful negotiations and some of the original hand-written drafts for Mandela’s autobiography, 'Long Walk to Freedom'.

Against a backdrop of two images of Mandela as a President who loved to meet people especially children, GALLERY 7 will present the landmark years of Mandela’s Presidency through film, photographs and objects. His original appointments diary from 1997 are displayed, along with mementos of his inauguration in 1994. Film will illustrate Mandela’s strategic, conciliatory approach to governing a country going through profound and tempestuous change, and his success in bringing South Africa back onto the international stage through a busy calendar of visits overseas.

At the centre of GALLERY 8 are the original chairs from Mandela’s post Presidential office at his Foundation in Johannesburg. From these chairs he met and talked with many of the hundreds of world leaders, celebrities and people who sought him out during his retirement. A selection of some of Mandela’s favourite original ‘Madiba Shirts’, the colourful patterned shirts he became famous for wearing, will also be on display. Included in this gallery is the boxing glove signed and gifted by Muhammad Ali to Mandela, who was an avid boxing fan and met Ali several times after 1990.

GALLERY 9 will feature 95 heartfelt messages to Mandela from around the world, recorded in the ten days of mourning after his death, each message representing a year of his life. Visitors will be able to listen to these while watching film footage of Mandela’s final journey from Johannesburg to his ancestral home in Qunu in the Transkei in December 2013.

In GALLERY 10, 16 original artworks by acclaimed South African artist, John Meyer, will be displayed. Each painting depicts an event or theme of Mandela's life as imagined by the artist, from his rural boyhood in Qunu through his years as a dedicated lawyer in the lively Johannesburg of the 1950s to the hardships of jail and his achievements as President of South Africa and a global leader.

Gavin Varejes, Executive Chairman of Richmark Holdings who collaborated with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and TEG Live to bring this exhibition to South Africa, “we are really proud to showcase an exhibition of this calibre, representing an important journey in the history of political resistance and change in South Africa” he went on to add, “we need to re-instill that ‘Madiba Magic’ that taught us so much about integrity, transparency, passion and respect”.

Experience a rare and touching glimpse into the personal life of Nelson Mandela.

The Future of African Manufacturing: Making Things in a Changing World at Sandton Convention Centre

09 June 2020 - 10 June 2020

As the world continues to shift, subsequently affecting all aspects of industry as we know it, Africa’s manufacturing sector has proven resilient

The world is changing at an unprecedented rate in terms of innovative technologies, shifting customer expectations, as well as increasing social awareness of gender equality and restoration of previously marginalised communities. These major shifts have a considerable impact on the future of Africa’s manufacturing sectors. If African manufacturers can efficiently balance a combination of efficient economics of production and supply chains; strong and reputable products; loyal customers, an established logistics network as well as reliable online business elements, they will be well positioned in the future industrial marketplace.

Technological advancements have given rise to the revolutionary Industry 4.0. This phenomenon represents the complete digitisation of factories and manufacturing facilities that will ultimately merge with the unique needs of individual customers, resulting in benefits such as customised product design and manufacturing processes as well as speed to market to maximise customer satisfaction levels. Moreover, Industry 4.0 brings with it a host of additional benefits for manufacturers such as cost, productivity, profitability and operations that manufacturers are striving to control, streamline, optimise and enhance. Similarly, these opportunities extend to small and medium businesses, allowing them to establish new business models and integrate into global value chains.

Despite concerns that the continent lacks the requirements of global advancements to capitalise on innovative technological initiatives, African countries are uninhibited by infrastructure legacy challenges, thereby providing a higher degree of flexibility than their developed counterparts. Accordingly, Industry 4.0 remains a considerable opportunity for African manufacturers, ultimately giving the continent a leading edge over the global economy.

Further to this, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will provide improved levels of safety to manufacturing facilities. Human beings are restricted by the tasks they’re able to carry out in hazardous environments as well as the degree of accuracy to which they can complete them. Machines, on the other hand, are far superior in terms of executing these tasks safely as well as their level of competency, essentially minimising workplace accidents along with Workman’s Compensation claims. By encouraging industrial safety, automated machinery enables producers to reduce medical claims of workers, reduce downtime, save on long-term capital expenses and improve overall productivity for African industrialists.

In the face of increasing digitalisation, barriers to entry with reference to the manufacturing sector are dwindling, translating into a positive outlook for new African market entrants who are more flexible than their larger, more cumbersome counterparts, thereby providing products and services that were once the exclusive domain of major incumbents.

Further, digitalisation is set to empower the continent’s rural and small business owners, whereby advanced data analytics available to them on their smart phones can enhance partnerships among stakeholders along the entire value chain. Such connectivity provides support for their daily operations through tasks such as acceptance of digital payments and gaining insight into their customers so they can devise appropriate marketing strategies responsive to collected data. This ultimately places them on an equal footing with larger, more established businesses with the capital to access this data via expensive in-house software development. This access unlocks the opportunity for small business owners to apply for bank loans at long last, as they have incontestable evidence (data) supporting their revenue and cash flow projections.

Experts purport that Africa conveys a positive economic growth trajectory, deeming it a feasible alternative to other markets. Africa is regarded as the world’s fastest-growing continental economy, and its Business-to-business market is fundamental to this boom. B2B expenditure in the continent’s manufacturing is projected to reach $666.3 billion by 2030, $201.28 billion more than it did four years ago. As the buying power of Africa’s middle class continues to rise, demand for products and services across the continent subsequently increases, thereby enabling sustainable economic growth and much-needed integration amongst regions.

Radical transformations within both a global and African manufacturing context will be integrated into the entire supply chain, thereby optimising operations, and ultimately stimulating efficiency and innovation for years to come. By successfully assimilating advanced technologies into their systems, existing and prospective African industrialists can expect to realise even greater revenue and profits from their investment.

As the world continues to shift, subsequently affecting all aspects of industry as we know it, Africa has proven steadfast: Improved political stability, growing investment prospects, business-friendly trade agreements, Industry 4.0, enforcement of policies empowering black and female manufacturers in addition to governmental funding solutions, to name a few, are pivotal factors demonstrating a positive and thriving manufacturing future for Africa. #SandtonCentral #SandtonConventionCentre #EventsinSandtonCentral
