In collaboration with Imagnary House, we're adding colour to the future of South African youth.
On the 17th of June 2017, we're collaborating with Imagnary House to bring the Add Colour campaign to life. The Add Colour campaign is about encouraging design thinking and entrepreneurial skills in South African youth by using the arts.
Having partnered with the City of Cape Town, this campaign will begin in Atlantis with a collaborative mural, being created by Liebet Jooste of Liebetland: A Colouring Book .
Jooste will create a mural outline inspired by both the children in Atlantis and her imaginative world of Liebetland, where anything is possible, in an effort to uplift both the area and the youth’s knowledge of illustration and design. The children themselves will be the ones who add colour and make it come alive.
Sk8 for Gr8 will also be tutoring the children in design thinking and encouraging them to use this opportunity to broaden their horizons and consider a wider career path.
How you can help:
For the mural in Atlantis, there are a few items that are needed in support. To purchase these supplies, the Add Colour collaboration is running a crowdfunding campaign. In particular, money is getting raised for these items:
- Black and colour wall paint
- Stationery packs
- Colouring-in books (Liebetland: A Colouring Book)
This where you come in. If you’d like to help support the Add Colour crowdfunding campaign, check it out here.
Please join us and the City of Cape Town in celebrating the bright future ahead of our local South African youth.
