It’s Officially On!

This month, AfroFresco will be holding its first multimedia exhibition in Harare. By projecting art onto a wall in a crowded public place, we hope to give strangers an artful eyeful!
It’s officially on! Look out for our posts on our journey leading up to the date. We’ll see you there!

A Scribe Called Tswa

“With a Pen
A child will come to understand the meaning in their name
A tribe will retrace their pathway to the beginning of their totem
A people might preserve their culture for tomorrow’s generations
A simple prophecy in graffiti on a city wall some rock paintings”

tswarelo

Besides having a cool name to go by, Tswarelo Mothobe, A.K.A. A Scribe Called Tswa, has so much talent he has been recognised by sites as big as World hip Hop Market as an artist worth looking out for. We hope his poetry inspires you as much as it moves us!

Ubuntuism: Where Fashion meets Graphic Art

Ubuntuism is one of those brands so selective and cool that simply wearing one of their shirts will make you want to be a better person. From the rugged and afrocentric photos they put out, to their website that is in awe of people that live out the African ideal of “I am because we are.”, It is safe to say this T-shirt company has got it going on.

ICAfrican Students: The Refreshingly Beautiful campaign.

One of the most refreeshing Social Media Campaigns we have come across so far, from Ithaca college, African students are using great photography and gorgeous pictures to break stereotypes. We first found them on twitter and could not resist sending them a message to let them know how much their work is appreciated, you should do the same https://twitter.com/ICAfrican

"Africans do not all look alike."

  “Africans do not all look alike.” “Africans do not all look alike.”

"Is that the Zimbabwean flag we see? Nice!"

“Is that the Zimbabwean flag we see? Nice!”

Don’t forget to like Facebook page for more up do date creative inspiration (on the side bar.)
