Memorial for Gerald Kraak in CT and JHB

An Awakening in Cape Town 
In collective celebration of Gerald Kraak, who as friend and grantor - and often both – touched our lives significantly, we want to gather in the spirit of community, and remember and celebrate his life. While he was humble and unassuming, his principles were steadfast and he fought for them with his intellect. We also want to pay homage to the Gerald who loved theatre, art, literature and music. And we want the event to be a happy one, celebrating Gerald’s dry sense of humour. Gerald’s humanity connected him to other human beings, and this is worth celebrating.

Parking:           Street parking; and on the Parade, about a block away
