On 7 May, the Light From Africa Foundation was delighted to host Cape Town City Mayor, Patricia De Lille as the honored opening speaker at the Mad Potters Tea Party exhibition.  It was a joyous moment for the Light From Africa team and patrons to hear Patricia’s support of the ART IN THE FOREST project as well as her vision for the relief of child headed households in the Western Cape.

The incredible selection of artists whose work was shown in this fun and accessible exhibition of teapots, were able to contribute towards Light From Africa Foundation simply through choosing to show and sell their work at our gallery.Austin

This is one of the key messages behind our ongoing ‘call out’ to creatives.  We believe anyone, anywhere can make a difference and continue to appeal to ordinary citizens who may feel they are not in a position to get involved as well as artists and designers of all ages, cultures and levels of talent to contribute their creativity, skills and time in support of South African children affected by HIV/AIDS.
