Sixty+ Counts

A portrait exhibition with Ikamva Labantu


In celebration of the International Day of Older Persons (1 October 2017), Ikamva Labantu, in collaboration with Alliance Française du Cap and the Embassy of France in South Africa, will be hosting an exhibition of photographic portrait series of older persons residing in Cape Town’s township communities.

Ikamva Labantu is a non-governmental organization working at grassroots level with active community members for over 50 years. The organisation works extensively on addressing the needs of older persons and providing critical care and support to 2 000 vulnerable community members through 19 seniors clubs and home-based care services.

Through this exhibition, Ikamva Labantu wishes to draw public attention to the important role that older persons play in our society, and also to the complex challenges facing older persons residing in the township communities.
