The Way Forward

The Way Forward

“The Way Forward is positioned between the section ‘During the Genocide’ and the section of the Centre ‘After the Genocide.’ It too has its own separate space.

In this window the steps are free and open. The skulls at the base are not to one side, but centrally positioned at the bottom of the steps and two swirling forms flank those steps. The steps clearly lead up towards a sky that is wide and light and promises a better future.

The sky and prospect of hope can only be attained when the eye has recognised the skulls (the nation’s common dead) and moved from there up the steps towards the future.”
