David Marks Digitisation Project

Throughout his life and career in South Africa, David Marks collected a range of materials that documents popular music experiences in South Africa. This includes fanzines, programmes, concert tickets, set lists, photographs, posters, newspaper clippings, letters and diaries. In order to kick-start this process and make the material available for use we launched a seven-month digitisation project at Marks’s home in 2016. The digitisation has been concluded and the materials are currently being processed before it will be uploaded online.
