Celebrating Youth Month with art

Posted on July 04, 2016

In celebration of the 40th anniversary beginning of the Soweto uprising on 16 June 1976, Daniel Rankadi Mosako of UPArts Museums collaborated with the Ditsong National Museum of Cultural History to share art skills with 45 artists and art learners from the City of Tshwane metropolitan area, to create a 30-metre-wide work of art.

The end product of this endeavour commemorates the youth of South Africa. It is split into three ten-metre-wide canvas wall panels that represent the themes of 'Past', 'Present' and 'Future', respectively.

The skills sharing workshop took place from 11 to 12 June 2016 at the Ditsong National Museum of Cultural History. The unique work of art will be on display at the museum until 31 July 2016.
