LITTLE TRAVELLER (article first published : 2008-02-20)

Little Traveller is the title of an exhibition curated by Paula Thomson, featuring work from the Hillcrest AIDS Centre’s Woza Moya project, which is running at the Durban Art Gallery.

The Little Travellers are tiny beaded people, each with a unique personality, made by crafters working at Woza Moya, an income generating project of the Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust, run by Paula Thompson.

“We invite you to journey with us exploring the lives in photographs of the men and women who create little Travellers,” explain the organisers. “The exhibition will tell the story of the little traveller project and the impact it has had on all whom it has come into contact with, a variety of crafts, fashion, a documentary, mms cell phone technology will be on show around the theme Little Traveller made by crafters and supporters. This exhibition is a celebration of creativity and of what is possible with hope, trust and love.

“The Little Travellers are pins which are so named because wherever they are worn they are so appealing that you have to part with it and give it to someone else - so the little people have travelled the length and breadth of South Africa and the world, joining the panoply of objects which symbolise the HIV/AIDS pandemic.”

The Little Traveller exhibition runs until March 30 at the Durban Art Gallery which is situated in the Durban City Hall (entrance in Smith Street)
