rst six months of this year, providing a glimpseinto the wide range of community events, exhibits,
art workshops, and artist collaborations that they
have enjoyed. From creating and exhibiting unique
artwork inspired by the anti-apartheid artists of the
1970s (CAPs), orchestrating a collaborative mural in
honour of Human Rights Day, to collaborating withworld-renowned artist, Robin Rhode, for the April
Holiday Programme - Lalela Project students havebeen busy getting creative, critical, and conscious! We also announce some exciting new partnerships,such as our Leadership Programme initiative with
Learn to Lead, and our programmatic partnerships
with the David Rattray Foundation and the Amy
Biehl Foundation, which enable Lalela Project
to now provide its Ideas, Arts and Music (I AM)curriculum to over 1,000 students per week!
I would like to personally thank our Board of Directors in New York and South Africa, as well asour dedicated teams on the ground - our continuedgrowth has been made possible only by their passion and commitment.I hope you enjoy this new edition of Impact, and
