On De Waal Drive, driving out of the city bowl in Cape Town, South Africa, you have the view of the Cape peninsula's valley also known to many people as The Flats. The Flats extends all the way to areas like Monwabisi, a sub-area of Khayelitsha, one of Cape Town's most populated districts.
On that same drive, you can see the new Urban Visionary, a multi-storey mural and light installation created by the founders of Thingking and artist Faith47. They collaborated on the new design and have enabled public street art to be a catalyst for change through crowdfunding for a social cause. They aim to raise funds for public street lights to be installed in Monwabisi Park, Khayelitsha, through the organisation VPUU (Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading). For every light that is funded for in Monwabisi, the Urban Visionary mural is lit up in the evening- inspiring and engaging more people to become more active members in their society through #anotherlightup

"Kids can't even read the ingredients of their meal time"
Powerful stance on food rights. Whole Food Nutrition.
"I'm happy I'm learning Spanish." Activate the left and right brain. Ride the language love train.
"So I whispered and tiptoed with nervous discretion. But after 6 months of her life sat sitting on lids, Sipping on milk, nostrils sniffing on piss, Trying not to bang her head on toilet roll dispensers, I wonder if these public loo feeds offend her, 'Cause I'm getting tired of discretion and being polite."
Why not to be embarrassed when a mother feeds her child - from her breast.
Holly McNish's honest words and delivery on potent topics of food, language, love, womanhood, human rights.

Throughout the three day conference, I was able to weave between open pitching sessions, seminars and workshops that were hosted by inspiring and talented folks. Durban's sun-filled winter weather added to the vibrant nature of the conference that was organised by the team at Natural History Unit Africa.
Take a sneak peek at the different faces and scenes that happened in and around Durban's bustling port hotel, Docklands.
