The history of the Pietermaritzburg Agency for Community Social Action (PACSA) takes place against the backdrop of the tumultuous events of the 1980’s, 90’s and 2000’s as South Africa experienced the destructive power of the Apartheid system, its death throes and finally the birth of a new political dispensation. Today, 35 years since its inception in 1979, it continues to challenge the Pietermaritzburg community to think critically about development and social justice issues.

Recently PACSA, in association with the Alan Paton Centre at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, created an archive of material relating to this dramatic history. Jive Media Africa was commissioned to develop an exhibition to make this material accessible to wide audiences. The final result: “PACSA – Stories of Crisis and Compassion” is a series of wall banners which are now housed at the PACSA offices and which draw archival elements which act as a reminder for those who were there and in inspiration and encouragement to those who continue to work for justice.
