Imagining Mozambique

A travelling fundreasing groupshow exhibition to premier at Maxalot Gallery

The Motivation ;

Colonization, civil war, natural disaster and economic instability have plagued Mozambique which has led to widespread uncertainty for tomorrow's youth. What can the children of today in Mozambique create to change their destiny? What will peace and prosperity look like in their 21st century? Will the future be bright? Or will the cycle of despair continue?

This exhibition will consist of various works of art and a small photography section consisting of a compilation of Mozambican images that are given to artists as inspiration.

The intent of Imagining Mozambique is to create thought provoking art that will bring attention to the day-to-day life of the children of Mozambique. Further, we hope the exhibition will open a larger conversation in the media about the situation for children in Mozambique and ideally inspire people to act in one form or another.

The Contributing artists;
