AFRICA

Artolution artists have been active in Sub Saharan Africa since 2011, organizing community-based public art initiatives in Kenya, Mozambique, Cape Verde and South Africa. Through mural projects and performances, youth have campaigned for national unity in the face of ethnic-based violence and raised awareness for HIV and AIDS; orphans have envisioned a brighter future and connected with positive adult role models in their communities; local graffiti artists painted a giant passenger train with messages advocating for a peaceful democratic process; and children from informal settlements have become agents of positive social change in their communities.

Artolution is working to continue its partnerships across the continent to develop sustainable, ongoing programming in communities that need it most, using the arts to explore issues that are often difficult to discuss but critical to address in order to build successful, healthy and peaceful societies. Thank you to the many institutions who have partnered with us to make these projects possible: Kibera Hamlets, Open Society for Eastern Africa, Park Inn by Radisson (Cape Town and Johannesburg), aptART, Positivos, Palácio da Cultura (Cabo Verde), 9 Mile Project in Cape Town, 5 Cees Orphanage and Sophie Kanza Foundation.
