The campaign’s focus is on the revival of Constantia Primary School in South Africa.The schools walls and buildings are degrading, with fading paint, exposed rubble and cracks.Previous artists have painted murals with educational content, however these murals are faded.
3KCPT ( A local collective of graffiti artists) and myself will paint murals, cover the bare walls with graffiti alphabets and provide the school with paintings/prints for the internal classrooms.This will revitalise a neglected academic environment and motivate the children. Undoubtedly this will be an exciting experience for the students, as we will paint/work during break hours. Enabling students to ask questions and for us to engage their creative side. Creative subjects (eg. Art and Design) are not taught at this government run school, making this not just a campaign but a whole new experience.
With the lack of government attention to education, lack of funding is a prevalent issue.This contributes to the circumstances at Constantia Primary school, as students become demotivated due to the environment conveying the same disregard for their future, similar to the government.Further compounding the national issue of drop out rates in South Africa. If this campaign kicks off , we will continue this initiative in more under privileged schools.We want our donors to be part of the process, so original 3KCPT prints will be shipped (comes signed and has letter of authenticity.) to reward/commemorate your efforts in making everything possible.

We want to be apart of the solution to solving these educational problems and hopefully you do to!
