Art, AIDS and Education in South Africa

Edited by: Kate Wells, Marsha Macdowell, C. Kurt Dewhurst, Marit Dewhurst

In South Africa, The Siyazama Project enables rural, traditional craftswomen from KwaZulu-Natal to express their concerns about AIDS and all of its complexities through their beautiful cloth dolls and beadwork. The Siyazama Project and its producers communicate and spread awareness of HIV/AIDS through creative workshops, local and international exhibitions, museum collections, publications, and on-going research activities. Kate Wells, the leader of The Siyazama Project, has compiled this attractive, full color book to illustrate the main collaborators' roles in Siyazama ('we are trying').
