Three South African artists – Usha Seejarim, Lawrence Lemanoana and Hannelie Coetzee – have been nominated for the creation of a monument honouring Nelson Mandela in Ghent, Belgium.

The Mandela @Ghent Project is a collaboration between the University and the City of Ghent, Africalia and the South African Embassy. The initiators have recently started a crowdfunding campaign in support of the monument to be erected in De Krook neighbourhood.
