FORTHCOMING EVENT: Inaugural Images of Defiance fundraising auction

To mark Human Rights Month in 2017, SAHA will be hosting its inaugural Images of Defiance fundraising auction on 9 March 2017.

At this event, SAHA will be auctioning off 20 original struggle posters from the extensive SAHA Poster Collection (AL2446), in order to raise money to:

  • Produce and disseminate a new edition of Images of Defiance, including a new chapter on posters produced in order to forward ongoing struggles for justice since the transition to democracy;
  • Pilot and produce an educators' guide to Images of Defiance to be rolled out in schools across the country through the SAHA in the Classroom workshop programme; and 
  • Continue to document visual resistance in South Africa through the ongoing collection and preservation of contemporary struggle posters.

In addition to this fundraising initiative, SAHA will be producing limited numbers of reproductions of an additional 20 posters, appearing in the original edition of Images of Defiance, and making these available for purchase through the South African crowdfunding site, Thundafund.

This campaign will be launched in March 2017, to mark the start of Human Rights Month in South Africa.
