Twin Mosia

My name is Twin Mosia from Mamafubedu Petrus Steyn, Free State province in South Africa. I am a museum curator from Elandskop Museum which is a history / agricultural museum. I am an award winning curator and heritage activist, who also have a passion for community development. In am currently establishing a museum from scratch which involves a lot of researching, documenting, raising awareness in communities on heritage and culture in South Africa. I am also using heritage/culture to simulate opportunities, encourage reconciliation, nation building and social cohesion. In 2016 I was awarded the National Golden Shield Heritage Award and the Simon Van Der Stel Gold Medal by both the National Heritage Council and Heritage Association of South Africa. The latter came with the tittle of Reconciliation and Unity Ambassador. 2016 I appeared in a documentary titled Goode Hoop at Rjiksmuseum in Amsterdam and also in Arnout’s Hauben Heldes in Belgium. I am a reenactor of note and loves bringing history to life with re-enactments. In 2017 I was counted amongst 200 Top Young South Africans by the Mail & Guardian, I was awarded the Kudu Award by the South African National Parks for my work in Environmental and natural heritage conservation. In 2018 alone I was awarded the Eco Logic Award, counted as one of 100 Young Mandelas by News 24. I received the Presidential Award as one of 100 Presidential Recipient. I have recently been counted as one of 100 Young Independent in the SADC Region by The Young Independents. My interest are Heritage, Museums, Culture, History, Research, Arts, Documentaries, Tourism and Environment.

I would like to collaborate in any of the above!
