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!

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.)

Stay Inspired 🙂

You might have already seen this stunning picture already, on Reddit or Pinterest, and it is no wonder it is getting around fast. It is from a photo essay by Photographer Robin Hammond on Zimbabwe’s Gold Rush. It is beautiful, isn’t it?
