Mandela, Mammals, and Masks
Wildlife in South Africa is abundant, with almost 300 mammal species! The term “Big Five” is used to describe the power and strength of the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhino.
In this family program, participants will have the opportunity to create animal masks or puppets and then create short vignettes with their animals. Each animal family will face a small conflict, and in the spirit of democracy and equality, come to a resolution together.
The workshop will be led by local South African artist and educator, Dina Kaplan, and Johannesburg visual artist, Thabang Lehobe.
