Title:Die ATKV as kultuurorganisasie binne 'n veranderende Suider-Afrikaanse samelewing
Author:Möller, Pieter
Periodical:New contree: a journal of historical and human sciences for Southern Africa
Geographic term:South Africa
Abstract:The Afrikaanse Taal en Kultuur Vereeniging (ATKV), founded in Cape Town on 19 August 1930, aims at developing Afrikaner culture and language. Its role has changed considerably after the transformation of South Africa into a multiracial democracy in 1994. The article pays specific attention to the role that the ATKV currently plays. It considers the organization's change of focus, management and attitude within the new political dispensation. It discusses whether the organization is succeeding in enhancing, deepening and expanding Afrikaner culture and whether it is modern and dynamic. Some of the projects hosted by the ATKV are evaluated to indicate in what measure the ATKV reaches out to other cultures and its influence on the broader society. The author demonstrates that the ATKV's activities are aimed at achieving its goals with drive and creativity. It plays a critical role that will benefit the broader South African society in the 21st century. Notes, ref., sum. in English, text in Afrikaans. [Journal abstract, edited]
