Permanent exhibition

This exhibition comprises a series of handpainted displays, which were produced by the city's young signwriters in collaboration with artist Dorothee Kreutzfeldt. The displays offer different insights into the history and function of the Drill Hall, from its inception in 1904 to the present.

The signs are also informative, telling the story about the refurbishment and role of the site as an active, multiuse heritage and cultural site. A large mosaic serves as a visual interpretation of the changing plans of the Drill Hall.

This exhibition was produced by various artists as well as by inner-city training organisations, the Boitumelo Project and the Creative Inner City Initiative.
