The Corridors of Freedom is a City of Joburg initiative aimed at reversing the spatial legacy of apartheid in order to create equal, sustainable access to opportunities for all the people of Johannesburg.

Three Corridors have been identified and the first one, Empire-Perth, is currently undergoing a naming and branding process.

The process began with a schools research project conducted by grade nine learners which yielded 5 possible names for the Corridor - Ithembalethu, //hapo, Sakhiwo, Empilweni and Vusa.
