Museum Saturday POETRY by Pniël Writers Group (guest poet Dr Diana Ferrus)

Celebrate Heritage Day with us! Bring your picnic blanket and enjoy poetry by Pniel Writers Group followed by live music by Wren Hinds on our event lawn. 

Our Museum Cafe will be serving up a traditional Heritage Day menu. Join us in indulging in all our South African favourites as we picnic under the sun. Share and celebrate our unique culture and heritage with friends and family.

Pniël Museum Skryfskool is a product of Pniël Museum’s endeavours to give people the opportunity to develop God-given talents that otherwise would have gone unfulfilled. The Skryfskool was started in 2018 through the generous support of the ATKV who made a few workshops under the leadership of Dr Diana Ferrus possible. In 2021 the group published Voetspore – `n Pniëlse Digbundel and are currently working towards a second collection of poems.

Join us for a poetry reading by these inspiring women. Line-up includes: Guest poet and mentor Dr Diana Ferrus. Shereen Adams, Brigite Cyster, Dr Eleonor Damon, Gameeda Henry, Florence Philips, Anne-Marie Lackay and Urline Williams.


A day to celebrate,

a day to commemorate,

a day to propagate,

our diversity

amongst the people of our state.

A day to connect,

a day to reflect,

a day to correct,

broken racial ties

with those who want to defect.

A day to braai,

a day to rectify,

a day to try

to be stronger together

under the African sky.

On this day, without regret,

we must try to resurrect,

our trust and pride lest we forget,

the fallen heroes of yesteryear

who on this day we honour with respect.

Poem by Gameeda Henry from WONDROUS WORDS AND DEEDS

Part of the Rupert Museum outreach and educational programme the Pniël Museum Kunsskool has been an active partner since 2021. The initiative to expose the youth in the Pniël community to various art forms was started by the Pniël Museum three years ago. Since then, art classes have been presented on a monthly basis by Carina du Randt and this is combined with group visits and workshops at the Rupert Museum.

Please note that the majority of the performance will be in Afrikaans.
