This Youth Day, Sizanani Charity is not only thinking outside the box but we are challenging street artists to art that box.
On the 16th of June, National Youth Day, Sizanani Charity will be hosting their first graffiti contest in order to raise funds to support their community programmes.
- Winter Drive
- Food Drives
The Sizanani Charity is a registered NPO which was founded on the belief of unity and helping people who are in need while trying to empower them. We work with youth, women, children, animals and disabled individuals in order to make a change by finding solutions which address issues that most of us in this country do not often admit are problems.
To state two of our projects; we have initiated a Men Against Rape Campaign to fight against the sexual and domestic abuse of women and children and we also run a Leadership Academy Program which is powered by and fully funded by Eskilz FET College, to empower young students in reaching their full potential and becoming great leaders that they are.
But why graffiti, you ask? Timmal Holdings has a site that is in need of a new look to match our ethos and mission of our group. Through this contest, Timmal Holdings wants to bring attention to creative solutions, partnerships, and provide an opportunity for street artists to showcase their talents and techniques.
A contest that will be judged by local, live audience and art professionals and finalists will compete for cash prizes and the chance to have their winning pieces exhibited on our 4 containers.
The details of the event are as follows:
