Ever wondered about the Joburg Skyline ?

Join us for something different - a lecture which takes you on a visual journey though the towers and turrets, spires and steeples of the city, old and new. These pinnacles are "the cherries on the top" or could be something that rises from the quartz of the Witwatersrand.

They may be church steeples, mosque minarets, clock towers, funny follies, or imposing bank turrets, functional telecommunications or useful water towers, and some even had a military purpose. They are a feature of the Johannesburg skyline that you really can't ignore them, but somehow these edifices blend into the city without missing a beat.

See the Joburg skyline with a fresh eye, as Prof. Katherine Munro gives you pause for thought, a moment or two of laughter, and plenty of memories.
