Visual Redress Collection

In 2015, the Department of Visual Arts at SU initiated a preliminary survey in which students indicated the need for multilingual signage on campus. Various respondents discussed their inability to navigate around campus because much of the signage was in Afrikaans, which they could not read, and this led to them feeling confused and unwelcome. The department then suggested and presented to Facilities Management the inclusion of three languages (Afrikaans, English, and isiXhosa) on signage boards, and this was approved in late 2015 and is now implemented all over campus.
