iTHEMBA TOWER Art Project in Johannesburg 2016-02-18

iTHEMBA TOWER Art Project in Johannesburg

‘iThemba Tower’ is a community art project located at the Spaza Art Gallery in Troyeville, Johannesburg. This is a 20 meter-high permanent art installation made with over 4,000 recycled plastic bottles, on a redundant communication tower. The project will collect & register an equal amount of messages from the community and each of them will become a “message in a bottle”.
iTHEMBA TOWER Community Art Project Johannesburg

This project is about recycling and giving visibility to a less advantaged community in Johannesburg, by raising up a massive tower in which everyone participates. The bottles will be collected from the local informal waste collectors. The project will also get the local schools involved, contributing to raise awareness about recycling among kids in Troyeville.
