Check out the latest Rock Girl bench that was unveiled at the Manenberg Housing office in Aprii 2012. The bench was designed by Sibongile Memani and is located a few blocks from the first bench that inspired the campaign at Red River Primary School.
In April 2012, learners from Red River Primary School participated in the world’s largest public art project, the Inside Out Project. The students came together at the Bank in the Fringe in Cape Town to talk about what it is like to be a girl and a boy and to take photographs of each other. One Dog Chicken set up the studio and taught the kids how to use the cameras. Watch this space as the kids will be pasting the photos up around Cape Town and Manenberrg later this year, taking back the streets!
Rock Girl joins hands with Sam Scarborough to revamp classrooms at Red River School in Manenberg. The grade 7 girls and boys united with teachers, parents, and staff over the school holidays to continue making their school cleaner and safer. After much scrubbing, scraping, and sweeping, the paint brushes came out and the students got a lesson in mixing colors and painting murals from the pros. With paint donated by Plascon and Cavendish Mall, the students turned dingy classrooms into vibrant learning spaces in a matter of hours. Students from Reddam Atlantic Seaboard also joined in and Reddam will now partner with Red River to carry on this good work. A huge thanks to everyone for such an amazing effort!
