It was a place with no name: a plot of land that had been designed as a public space in the 1950s but never made it that far; an area people called “the space between Letsatsi Street and Herby Mdingi Street, next to Donkey Church”, defined only by the places around it, not by what it was itself. After the Soweto Street Festival, it was a community-organized public space. It was a place – owned and operated by the community.
