When I was in Cape Town in November/December, I walked through the Company's Garden and was lucky enough to see the Freedom to Create 2011 Exhibition, shown on panels along the main pathway.
Freedom to Create is a non-profit organisation investing in the cultural foundations of societies to foster harmony and understanding. It focuses on regions of the world where there is the greatest need to change mindsets, believing that freedom of creative expression is key to a just society.
It was an incredibly moving exhibition, and as I walked through the gardens it was touching to hear snatches of conversation sparked by the artworks - and to share my own thoughts with the friend I was walking with.
I've included a couple of the pieces from the exhibition below. I would encourage everyone to take a look at the full selection over on Freedom to Create's facebook page (where the images and information below are from).
