The House of Movements
On the eve of its 20th anniversary in 2006 Khanya College came to the conclusion that the process of social movement building goes beyond targeted education and training for individual activists. Of equal importance is the need for a range of other facilities that enhance activist development, and without which the work of education and training by institutions like Khanya remains limited and incomplete. Such facilities also include the availability of spaces where activists can meet, formally and informally, to exchange experiences and consolidate their views on the various challenges facing the movements.
In 2006 the College set up a House of Movements (situated at 123 Pritchard Street, Johannesburg), which among others houses the following facilities for movement building: Conferencing and Workshop Related Facilities; Resource Centre and Library; Computer Lab or Internet Centre; affordable rental space for social justice and other working class organisations; a Women’s Centre; and catering facilities for the movements.
