18 July 2016 | #Mandela Day. We will reshape the future

ZAM joins the many, many thousands in a celebration of Nelson Mandela Day. Our work is rooted in the solidarity movements with the struggles against colonialism and apartheid. With celebrating Mandela's birthday, today 98 years ago, with activism and reflection we honour the achievements of our forefathers and -mothers. They managed to defeat oppression and prejudice. We will build on their victories and reshape the future. We will make everyday a Mandela Day.

Mandela Landscape, the illustration in this blog, was created by photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn and artist Berend Strik. In 2015, the proceeds of the sale of the original work were donated to ZAM as a gesture of solidarity with ourm efforts to present the perspectives (journalistic and artistic) productions and photography to international audiences. A limited series of art prints of the works, signed and numbered by the artists, is available. More informatie here.
