About Manifesting the New... 

The art campaign, “Manifesting the New,” designed by the Butterfly Art Project team, offered Community Art Facilitators (CAFs) an opportunity to be part of a 7-month long project that includes 4 x 3hr workshops of training, 8 weeks of implementation with children from disadvantaged communities, CAFs online mentoring (one on one/group) and an exhibition.  

The indirect beneficiaries of this project were children and youth that were taught by our CAFs, whom were mentored throughout the art campaign. The mentoring process encouraged implementation and helped BAP to monitor the effectiveness of our training.  

The exhibition showcased all final artworks and documentation of the process of the art campaign. All our CAF participants and their beneficiaries were invited to see their work professionally displayed in a public exhibition space: the Zeitz Mocaa This instilled pride and provided a link to an art buying society which disadvantaged beneficiaries rarely have access to. 

With the this campaign, we empowered children and youth. The painting process taught them how they can be present, realise the needs of the moment, listen to the future impulses and then take action to create something new. The painting process guided participants in how they can honour the past by building on the good foundations or avoid making the same mistakes., by acknowledging the current situation with all the evil in the world and still have hope for a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
