SIYAZWELANA (article first published : 2000-10-10)

Siyazwelana (We Care About You is an exhibition which opened yesterday to run until October 28 daily from 09h00 to 17h00 at the Cato Manor Library, 120 New Dunbar Road. The exhibition consists of bedspreads and mobiles made by disabled pupils from Mason Lincoln Special School, Umlazi, to show their care for children who are living with, or orphaned by, AIDS.

Since July, disabled pupils from Mason Lincoln Special School, Umlazi have been involved in the pilot project presented by Art Works Trust. They have decorated fabric squares with bright, positive images such as birds, butterflies and birthday cakes and these have been sewn into bedspreads. Together with mobiles made by local squatter children, they will be given to AIDS orphans and people living with AIDS.

The exhibition at Umkumbane Library marks the end of the pilot project and launches the next phase, Thatha inselelo (Take Up the Challenge) which challenges others to use the same simple strategy in their schools, colleges, places of work, in their homes and communities, and turn hopelessness and apathy into active involvement.

More details from Liz or Gabi at Art Works Trust on (031) 309-8538.
