1. Credo Mutwa Cultural Village - Soweto

Credo Mutwa Cultural Village

The Credo Mutwa Cultural Village is an open air display zone that is joined with a historical center style, exhibiting the works and motivation of Credo Mutwa.

Mutwa despite of being a healer, he is well known for his figures and structures which he uses to pass on vital individual and political messages. He frequently differentiates customary African fables and strategies with present day thoughts and Westernized patterns. This is particularly valid for his private accumulation, which he delivered somewhere in the range of 1974 and 1986.

The admission to the Credo Mutwa Cultural Village is free of charge.
