A copy of the speech is recorded in the Robben Island Museum newsletter: Ilifa Labantu - Heritage of the People, October 1997, 1(9): 3.

Although Gerard Corsane is now based at the Department of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester, he was the first Robben Island Training Programme Co-ordinator and played an important role in the establishment of the Postgraduate Diploma in Museum and Heritage Studies.
7
In many ways the RITP acted as a catalyst that helped to bring initiatives in the three institutions together.
8
The University of the Western Cape was a ‘historically black university’ and the University of Cape Town a ‘historically white’ institution in the old apartheid system.
9
Two of the heritage institutions that have representation on the co-ordinating committee of the Postgraduate Diploma in Museum and Heritage Studies are the District Six Museum and the South African Heritage Resources Agency.
10
The whole notion of ‘museum outreach’ can be problematised, especially in the South African context, as it still communicates that the museum (possibly in its traditional format) has to reach out to stakeholders, rather than allowing these stakeholders to ‘reach in’ to the museum and affect change and transformation.
11
The Diploma, and what may grow out of it, along with similar academic programmes in other institutions, constitute one way of transforming the museum profession. There are a number of experienced South Africans, both black and white, who are already working in either the old institutions or the new initiatives and who have had significant influences on the processes of transformation.
