Tolerance Posters at Constitution Hill, South Africa

The Tolerance Traveling Poster Show opened at Constitution Hill, Johannesburg, South Africa on July 16.  Constitution Hill is a famous prison site where Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and other notable activists were imprisoned for various periods of time.  It has since been refashioned as a public museum that retells the local history.

This Tolerance show was part of the celebrations for the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. On July 17, Barack Obama gave a speech at the nearby Ellis Park Arena on the topic of Tolerance.

Myself and all of the participating designers were honored to be able to show at such an important, historic site. This exhibition would not have been possible without the generous organizing effort of Ravi Naidoo and Design Indaba.


Below, you can see some press coverage that this exhibition received, from City Press, The Sunday Independent, and The Sunday Times.
