SIX – Created in collaboration with Shortstraw, ‘Find A Way’ is the latest single from The Kiffness‘ new album KIFF.

 

 

SEVEN – Based on a previous installation created using recycled plastic bottles from the Zama-Zama (informal waste collectors), street artist r1 is teaming up with a group of artists to raise the ‘iThemba Tower’ in Troyeville. The 30m permanent art installation is being installed to strengthen the community of downtown Johannesburg, support the livelihood of informal Zama-Zamas and raise a general awareness around recycling.

Find out more about the project and how to support it on Indiegogo.
