    In the spirit of fostering collaboration, and in celebration of Women’s Month, a few young women have come together to organise a Typographical Exhibition, aiming to illustrate the collective power of women. The exhibition will consist of type illustrations from a number of female artists/creatives/designers/ any one who is keen to try. Each illustration will have to include the following copy “Love Your Msebenzi Babes!” articulated in any way the producer sees fit. Our aim is not only to celebrate women, but more importantly the work of women and what we can achieve through collaboration. The exhibition will be followed by a sale of limited edition garments featuring the work of the artists who will be exhibiting on the night. Read Less
