Khulisa Social Solutions
Wealth inequality has resulted in neglected people and tattered communities in Cape Town, South Africa. A multitude of organizations are dedicated to improving the lives of people in need. A unique approach to helping people and improving societal dynamics is through collaborative art. Art is a powerful form of expression that can unite people through the process of creation. This project assisted Khulisa Social Solution’s Streetscapes Program in a collaborative process to create a mural. In order to establish trust with the program participants, we generated a mosaic of collected bottle tops. The shared experience of labor afforded more positive relationships that assisted in the development of a representative community art piece.
