Historical Landmarks

These are educational workshops and tours aimed at schools and youth that want to learn more about the history and former residents of Constantia.

The Community Heritage Centre forms CHEP’s core vision – the establishment of a permanent centre for heritage and memory in the Constantia Valley. We envision a centre filled with stories and artefacts, where all the public are welcome to visit and read, listen and interact with the past as a means to engage with the present.

The aim of the Heritage Centre is to create a physical space that counters the dominant narrative of forced removals in the Western Cape suburbs. It is a space where all South Africans may come to grapple with pressing issues related to land dispossession and redistribution.
