FHR Youth Murals


Within AFRA’s Forgotten Citizens Youth Mural Project, funded by the Foundation for Human Rights, dialogues were held with young people living on commercial farms in uMgungundlovu, where they shared their experiences and learned about their land and employment rights.

A series of three murals are currently underway, with young people recording and claiming the rights that they have learnt. The development of the murals was captured on a stop-frame animation video which young people have been sharing through social media and other platforms, with #Siyazi, which translates to “we know”, meaning that through the dialogues we have had with them, they now know their rights.

The end products from the process are not only aesthetically pleasing mural, but useful information alongside them as well as stop frame animations. A short documentary was produced to alongside the stop frame, both of which were screened at the annual PACSA film festival.
