Design Indaba Trust, Faith47 and Thingking have teamed up to create a mural that seeks to create a community level change through the duality of art-based social impact.

This new collaborative multi-story artwork ‘Harvest’ provides a visual feedback loop for those who view it; the wall lights up at night each time enough money is raised for one new light to be installed in a pathway of the informal settlement of Monwabisi Park in Khayelitsha, through the organisation VPUU (Violence Prevention through Urban Upgrading).

The intricate lighting pattern created by Thingking is an artistic endeavour that also serves as a reminder that there are communities in the city that lack the luxury of light, a major public safety concern.
