Diverse lives explored

22 September 2008

The Centre for Popular Memory (CPM) in UCT's Department of Historical Studies has launched a series of videos and a book documenting the lives of people living and working on three main arterial roads in Cape Town.

Titled Street Stories from Klipfontein, Lansdowne and Main Road, the project comprises a full-colour 66-page book and six documentaries on DVD.

It is the result of three years' work, during which more than 400 people who live and work on these roads were interviewed.

The project explores the roads as corridors of economic and social diversity, focusing on issues such as work, life, homelessness, the transport network, migrancy and crime.
