Rock Girl’s vision is to create real safe spaces in some of the most dangerous, challenged communities in Cape Town. At the same time, Rock Girl hopes to create symbolic safe spaces in the CBD to raise awareness and unite men and women, boys and girls in the effort to end violence against women and girls.
Rock Girl believes that the desire to create safe spaces is one that breaks down cultural, racial, economic, social, and professional barriers. This forms the foundation of our work. Rock Girl does not dictate what benches should look like but instead allows designers and community members to work together towards a shared vision.
