The idea behind the exhibition "Broadcasts" is to capture people from various communities in South Africa and translate their ideas into various media such as painting, photography, illustration and film. In many ways it is about empowering those that don't have a voice or people who would like to share their opinions with the world. The project is presented by five artists from South Africa who will take this concept and exhibit their own version of the theme which will create interesting compositions and interperations.
Two of the artists Wesley van Eeden (Durban) and Paul Senyol (Cape Town) have recently returned from an artists residency in Finland, where they initiated this project by interviewing people from the Nordic regions.
Some of the themes explored in this exhibition are people's dreams, hopes, fears, ambitions and vision for their city and country.
Every Friday for the last couple months, Wesley van Eeden has been interviewing people and uploading those interviews on the Hope Project website which you can listen to.
