Slide 1



It was with our deepest sorrow that we announced the death of Dr Jeremy Gale Silvester, much loved and respected Director of the Museums Association of Namibia (MAN), historian, freedom fighter, revolutionary and mentor who passed away on 05 July 2021.

Jeremy was passionate about his work in Namibia and his contribution to Namibian History, Museums, and the Heritage, Arts, and Culture sector will be impactful for generations! Jeremy dedicated his life to Making Museums Matter!

For this reason, we are dedicating the next Museum Matters (the Bi-annual Newsletter for the Museums Association of Namibia) to celebrating Jeremy’s life, work and passion. The newsletter will be a bumper edition (as we did not publish one in July) and will be titled “Museum Matters – The Jeremy Edition”. The newsletter will be published on the 22 December 2021, which would have been Jeremy’s 59th Birthday.
