OF SOUL & JOY PROJECT - Social Art in South Africa: Empowering Youth through Photography A Rubis Mécénat Cultural Fund and Easigas project
Zuma is a student in the Of Soul & Joy project which brought the art of photography to the students of Buhlebuzile Secondary School, located in the remote township of Thokoza, south-east of Johannesburg. The project’s goal is to become a visual platform and a skills development programme for the learners. Workshops lead by internationally renowned photographers are offered and selected trainees receive a post-grad education in photography at a prestigious school in Johannesburg. Furthermore, it gives the budding photographers the opportunity to meet those involved in the art market and in artistic events.
