About

The Great African Caravan is the first major travel project by the Art Caravan Association. 12 international artists from all around the globe (India, Argentina, Britain, Uganda, Germany, and Kosovo) will travel for 7 month through the continent of Africa covering 12 countries. The adventurous journey will start in July 2018 in South Africa, go through South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi,Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Sudan and end in Egypt in February 2019.

Throughout the journey, the artists will work with local humanitarian organisations, youth groups, and artists as well as further governmental bodies, cultural entities, and similar institutions to connect, strategise, design novel solutions for local challenges, and build awareness on SDGs with the broader aim of contributing to peace, global citizenship, and sustainable social change. In each country it will be collaboratively worked on a specific Sustainable Development Goals using art as a holistic, inspiring, and raising tool.

Workshops, dialogue creation, and art works will aim to raise awareness, offer sustainable tools for problem solving and peace building, and spread the spirit of interconnectedness, peace, and global citizenship. Individual projects as well as a documentary of the entire journey will additionally, each in their beautifully individual way, inspire, excite, and spread the mission of a better world. Furthermore it will provide material to bring awareness, spark discussions, and increase participation regarding significant topics such as migration, borders, peace, environment, and human rights.
