Det skal I lave

I'll be your guide on our interactive walk exploring the authentic diversity of township life. At first glance, life may seem a daily struggle but delve deeper and we’ll find a place of friendship and resilience. Our itinerary begins at MADaboutART, a social enterprise using art and creative expression to support children to make positive life choices. You'll see our gallery of amazing narrative artwork telling stories of the lives of children in the township. In the streets around MADaboutART you’ll experience the culture and ways of the township. You'll learn about Xhosa traditions and the role of the Sangoma (traditional healer). Youth teams often practice soccer and netball on the sports ground. They might ask you to join in! You'll see many sights along the way; the contrast between traditional wooden homes and new Government-built brick homes, cattle and pigs grazing among the dwellings, taverns, women doing daily laundry, every day is a different experience. Finally, we'll return to MADaboutART where in afternoons and school holidays you’ll meet the children as they sing, paint, bead, whatever the activity of the day is (curriculum dependent). On Sunday mornings we have the option to join a local church congregation for part of their service. We hope you'll take a little township magic home with you (and leave a little piece of your heart with us)

Hello, I’m Beaty! I was born and grew up in Dam-se-Bos, Knysna. I’ll share my unique, no-frills perspective on life and social challenges in the new South Africa. Sometimes shocking but always honest, my personal story is part of the fabric of this experience. I joined MADaboutART while I was still at school. Now I have two children myself. I run an after-school curriculum for children in the township and a social enterprise based on interactive, socially-aware tourism which trains unemployed youth and raises income to create a brighter future for children in the township

Om organisationen

MADaboutART

MADaboutART fights HIV using art and education. Its award-winning curriculum for children and youth uses art to ignite imagination, have fun and achieve social change. Many young people in poverty experience anger and low self-esteem; a spiral of vulnerability that destroys hope. MADaboutART offers a safe, fun learning environment where children heal past trauma and build hope for the future

Her skal du være

We’ll be exploring Dam-se-Bos township. The first residents were moved here by force in the 80s under apartheid. People chopped trees to build shelters. There was no electricity so they burned wood for warmth. Many were hungry. Today the area is much improved. Even so some families still have no electricity, running water, proper toilets and no money for food. We aim to grow the local economy and create a brighter future for people who live here
