The Bus Shelter Helter Skelter

We have built a really close unit between the core team, having spent over a month working on the main spaces. Whenever we would be painting the bus shelters and further buildings where we would meet other groups of the community, there would be so much commotion that we sometimes had to just wait for it to subside. We have also been capturing video footage for a DVD showcasing the project, featuring local artists. Dlala Indima has really spread like wildfire and the discourse that it has created has been very uplifting. I must say, in my teens growing up in Phakamisa I never imagined such an interest in the creative arts, recycled crafts and most recently performance art genres.  The nature of how people have gotten involved has also sparked challenging debates about self-sustainability and new ideas for local entrepreneurs.
