Keleketla! Library creates access to the use of arts and media tools and alternative education models for community engagement. Keleketla! Library was founded in 2008 as part of the Joubert Park Project residency program by innacitycommunity collective and Bettina Malcomess. Keleketla! is a non-profit organization with a lean core team, advisors, affiliates, local and global networks.
From the on-set, the whole idea of Keleketla as a space is just that of experiencing art and exploring what art does in life, how does it end and how does it become relevant. We used it to address issues of heritage and the danger of one story and allow that space be a place where multiple stories and multiple narratives can exist parallel each other in order to challenge dominant narratives, for example.
