Public art and advocacy

South African artists and poets recently collaborated on a public art campaign by Art for Humanity to highlight growing incidences of violence and abuse against women and children.

Over 21 billboards are being flighted around the country, including Ernestine White’s Fragile Cargo screenprint. Other artists involved in the Women for Children campaign include Kim Berman, Diane Victor, Angela Buckland, Nomusa Makhubu and Judith Mason. Founded in 1988, Art for Humanity is a not-for-profit organisation specialising in the production of fine art print portfolios, exhibitions, billboards and research projects advocating various human rights issues in South Africa, across Africa and internationally.
