Widely revered for his overwhelming heads and monumental African sculptures, evoking themes of suffering, reconciliation, glory and sublimation, his works grace public and private collections countrywide and internationally.
CEO of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, Ms Kone Gugushe, says, “This Freedom Day as we support the recovery efforts from the biggest health pandemic in our lifetime, we continue to celebrate struggle icons, such as our founder Mr Nelson Mandela, who dedicated their lives to securing our freedom. For us, this includes promoting and protecting the rights of children including those children in need of specialised healthcare. This event is therefore a crucial activation as part of our fundraising campaign called Serve like Madiba and Give Like They’re Yours, so that we can raise funds for sick children in need.”

About The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund:
The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund (the Fund) is an advocacy development agency and a leading champion for the general well-being of children, founded in 1995 by the former statesman Mr. Nelson Mandela. To make the life of children a celebration, the Fund is undoubtedly honoured with the task of continuing the legacy of its founder. The key message that goes with carrying out this honoured task is found and embedded in the vision of the Fund, which is: “Changing the way society treats its children and youth.” The Fund believes that children should enjoy the absence of hunger, abuse, exploitation and homelessness. This is underpinned by a clear notion that the eradication of poverty and its systemic causes are the ultimate desired change, rather than amelioration of difficult and unchanging circumstances in which targeted beneficiaries find themselves. It is possible to have a world where children live with dignity, are safe, nurtured and their voices are heard and that the transformation needed to create such a world needs every part of society to play its role.
Come and celebrate your inner artist and free your inspiration! In celebration of Freedom Day and proudly South African artworks. There's truly something for everyone! Whether you’re in the market for some collectable pieces or are just a lover of local art, this event is bound to satisfy your innermost creative’s desires!
