This was the first time I have ventured into a township without an official tour. I never felt unsafe so it was a great way to explore such an important part of South African society.
Definitely a large highlight of my time in South Africa. The knowledge, dedication, and passion by Sakumzi and Coco are truly inspirational. Their mission and the impact of their art extends far beyond the walls of the studio.
They give a wonderful impromptu tour (which is their style—it works perfectly) including dancing and singing by local (very enthusiastic and fun) kids and other groups. Great to get a taste for local township culture, and all that on top of the great paintings.
Not only is this gallery a must-see for anyone visiting or living in Port Elizabeth, but it is the start of a youth empowerment movement that is changing communities for good. Don't miss out on meeting these visionaries.
