Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition
Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition, at The Lighthouse Glasgow, explores the life and times of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (1918-2013) and marks the centenary of his birth.
About Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition
It provides insight into Mandela’s journey from young freedom fighter to becoming the inspiration for an international movement against South Africa’s violent and oppressive apartheid system, and an emblem of an ongoing struggle to build a more just and equitable world.
Born and raised in a rural village, Mandela joined the African National Congress where he became a leading figure in the fight against apartheid. Enduring life on the run, several long political trials, and ultimately 27 years in prison, Mandela developed a deep wisdom and a distinct ability to connect with others. As he famously said of his and others’ struggle against apartheid: ‘I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.’ It was not just his ideas, but also his magnanimous personality, resilience and charm that enabled Mandela to lead South Africa through a volatile transition. In 1994, he became the country’s first democratically elected president. He transformed the political landscape at home and around the world, becoming one of the most influential and iconic individuals of the 20th century.
Mandela’s vision remains timeless and inspiring in today’s troubled world.
The Lighthouse will show additions to the exhibition reflecting on Scotland and Glasgow's links with Nelson Mandela.
This touring exhibition, previously on show at London's Southbank Centre is presented by Apartheid Museum, Anti-Apartheid Movement Archives and ACTSA Scotland.
