The South African National Gallery gave
Lalela Project students the opportunity to
experience the art of printmaking usinglinocuts which ended in an exhibition of 
 the artwork.
Kathy Kotes, Soe Peters and Ricky Dyaloyi
from the Community Arts Project (CAP)made sure that we understood thebasics of linocut. Since the 1860’s linocuts
have been used for different purposes.
 We learnt about artists in South African
history who were not given the privilege

 to express their work. They had pride.This is what I loved the most about
 those artists. After all that history we feltlike the intellectuals, our minds becamebrighter and smart with the information
- everybody changed their attitude and
started to focus.
Being given the opportunity to do linocutwas an honour and a great privilege.
 We thank the South African NationalGallery and Community Arts Project
for everything. Now everyday those
who attend the workshop has a bit of 
experience and we understand the world
of printmaking.

On the 21 March 2013 Lalela Projectheld it’s Human Rights Day event at the
Imizamoyethu Police Station. We spent the day making the police station more
attractive and colourful for people to
notice it. The main point of the day was tobring the community and the policecloser together and forget about their issues with each other. We had
3 different communities working together; Masiphumelele, Hangberg
and Imizamoyethu. We were allmaking a difference.
