The “Unboxing Mayibuye Project”: Cooperation project to better preserve & enhance access to Mayibuye collections

The Unboxing Mayibuye Project was launched in 2022 as a 3-year cooperation project between the Robben Island Museum (RIM) and INA. It is funded by the French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement). The RIM has a Collections Unit (Mayibuye Archives) based at the University of the Western Cape. The project’s aim: unbox the Mayibuye collections, which are made of archival documents (video, sounds, films, and also artefacts, historical papers and photographs) relating to the South African and international fight against apartheid. The RIM, through the Mayibuye Archives’, aims to enhance the preservation and management of its collections and to imagine new ways of giving access to this national and world heritage.

To do so, INA, as a Technical Partner, will support RIM by providing audits, consulting and training services. One of the core outcomes will be a pilot project consisting of materials selected from RIM’s vast collections to be digitized and on the basis of which will be designed a dedicated access action.

This presentation will allow you to discover what this collection contains and how the Unboxing Mayibuye project has been built to contribute to the sharing of this heritage, and beyond!
