The OR Tambo Cultural Precinct (the Precinct) in Ekurheleni has been established and constructed to preserve the legacy of Oliver Reginald Tambo by the government of South Africa to acknowledge his great contribution of freedom for the people of South Africa. The Precinct is a proudly Ekurhuleni initiative that represents the city’s support of its citizens, a flagship tourism destination and museum to house important history for generations to come. It was opened in October 2012 by then deputy president Kgalema Motlanthe.
The Bag Factory is proud to be working with the OR Tambo Cultural Precinct on artists’ residencies and children’s workshops. The aim of the programmes is to help to built an arts presence in Ekurhuleni. The selected artists for this project are Usha Seejarim and Neo Matloga.
