Southern Africa is a treasure trove of unique locations waiting to be explored; quaint towns, historic regions and untouched rural areas packed with incredible beauty, intoxicating landscapes and friendly communities. We invite you to venture with us as we discover some beloved destinations beyond our neighbourhood, and meet the welcoming people who call these places home. 

8 Travelling Totems
We’ve worked with creative communities around Southern Africa to create 8 Travelling Totems – towering pillars that have been handcrafted over months, using skills, materials and knowledge from different areas of South Africa and Zimbabwe. Meet the makers, explore the areas in which they live, and discover the regional stories embedded in their totems – told through beading, weaving, woodwork, embroidery and more. 

8 Travelling Totems is curated by Platform, and will be on display at the V&A Waterfront from November 2021 to January 2022.
