Speaking up on Human Rights Day

March 21, 2022

Ahead of Human Rights Day, Lalela’s ‘Creation Generation’ curriculum invited learners to understand and explore their rights as youth through a series of educational, team-building and art-making activities, all of which culminated in striking posters and stencils.

Our Masiphumelele High School learners worked on these powerful posters, starting off with a word, phrase or symbol that conveyed a meaningful message.

Take a look at their beautiful work!

The primary goal of this curriculum was to develop in the learners an understanding of human rights, and specifically their rights as youth in South Africa.

The secondary goals were for the development of technical art skills and visual literacy.

We were certainly blown away by the sheer creativity and artistry shown by this talented group of learners, whose only exposure to the arts at their school is through Lalela’s after-school workshops.

In line with Lalela’s Theory of Change, further goals included that the learners would become positive role models for their peers with an improved sense of responsibility and leadership skills, becoming active citizens in their community.

All Lalela’s curriculums are designed to meet CAPS goals, e.g., developing creative, expressive and innovative individuals and teams; providing learners with exposure to and experiences in dance, drama, music and visual arts; developing arts literacy and appreciation; and developing life skills through the arts.

We’re so proud of these amazing young artists, and have no doubt that their inspiring and empowering messages will resonate not just among their peers at school, but throughout their community!

At Lalela, we call it life-changing art!
