The Streets of Fietas.

Fietas is a working class neighborhood just outside Johannesburg City Centre and has a rich history of struggle and survival in South Africa. Whilst groups like Die Antwoord exploit the image of Fietas residents for entertainment purposes the people make ends meet on a day to day basis. Ben Crossman's excellent film captures the hardships for some people in Fietas... here

We took a trip to the Alaska Informal Settlement in Mamelodi East to meet residents and paint their homes. Whilst there we met Meleney and Leon Kriel who have a fantastic project bringing art to the people of this special place. The children also painted a hubcap for a project we have in London.
