Communication and Outreach

Nelson Mandela based his entire life on the principle of dialogue and the art of listening and speaking to others; and the art of getting others to listen and speak to each other.


The Communications and Outreach function was strengthened by the appointment of three new staff members during the reporting period. The positions of Director: Communications and Outreach, Media Analyst and Exhibitions Co-ordinator were filled. The Foundation continued to enjoy a good media profile through both new media platforms like Facebook and Twitter but also through traditional media coverage of the Annual Lecture, Mandela Day, exhibitions, dialogues as well as events and projects supported by the Foundation.
