Cape Town – Youth from Vrygrond, Capricorn and Overcome Heights have over the past three weeks helped to create a huge piece of art, which is on display on the M5 and Capricorn Boulevard.
The Ship of Ubuntu sculpture created with renowned Mexican street artist Libre Gutierrez, symbolises the beauty, talents, history and future of the Vrygrond community.
More than 40 community member volunteers spent long days and nights constructing the enormous wooden sculpture.
The Vrygrond counter narrative project was a collaboration between non-profit organisation Sozo Foundation, who works with the Vrygrond community, the Vrygrond Community Development Forum and sponsored by The EDvance programme from San Francisco State University in the US.
Sozo Foundation facilitators Randall Daniels and Keenan Mowers supported the youth in developing the practical skills.
