" Imagination, critical thinking and innovation drives my principles of social justice, human rights, women's rights and violence. Being apart of the Millennium Fellowship will allow me to ratify and upskill my values and principles through a broader leadership domain that's tangible and effective in all places I reside and will be aligned to the SDG's. Being able to find alternative solutions to systematic and structural problems in South Africa thrills and excites me because I'll be learning, unlearning and upskilling. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: We Art Here

We the People Art Here is an initiative using social artivism as a tool for resistance, social cohesion, and remembrance against intersectional violent experiences faced by marginalised communities. The project will engage with personal narratives and experiences from people who come from Manenberg & Gugulethu as a pilot project in 2021 to reflect on their experience of violence. This will allow for the communities to enable and reinforce alternative ways to promote social cohesion, healing, and empowerment through a cross-community project. Through social cohesion art (whether through creative writing or painting) will be utilized to express their shared experiences of violence that are deeply historical and prevalent to our present-day structural unequal realities in South Africa. The initiative will speak to the myriad complex reality of violence that is deeply historical, structural, gendered, racial, based on class, and many other social factors in our communities through art.
