Colours of Change

Khwattu San Cultural and Education Centre will be hosting an exhibition of Contemporary San Art next month. The exhibition will be open to the public from 8 March 2014, showing works from the Kuru Art Project.

"Originating in 1990 as part of the Kuru Development Trust, in D’Kar, western Botswana, the Kuru Art Project has produced contemporary art that is original and remarkable in character. With no formal art lessons to influence their own innate abilities, the Kuru artists create from the heart. They all work in different techniques, including oil on canvas, linocuts, lithographs and more."
- Kuru Art Project

“Art starts with creation and will always be part of being human. As long as we live, our art will be there. It is like when you come upon a dried up plant that you know contains an edible tuber … you have to dig really deep to see where it started its life. That is where you will find the food to eat. Art is like that. You have to dig deep to find its life (meaning).”
