There is a Swahili proverb: MTU NI WATU, which means A PERSON IS PEOPLE.
By learning Swahili, different customs, temperaments and behaviours are better understood.
Swahili, or Kiswahili, belongs to the Bantu language family, a large family of languages spoken across a large area of sub-Saharan Africa. Throughout the centuries, Swahili spread through the trade among different peoples and nations. In both Tanzania and Kenya, Swahili is a national language, however it is spoken by millions more across Eastern, Central and Southern Africa: in Uganda, Burundi, Somalia, Mozambique and South Africa.

AFRICAN MURALS: PLAYFUL WALLS
March 22 & 29, 2015
April 5, 13*, 19 & 26, 2015.
What do you think, what did a traditional family home in Africa look like?
The walls of the house were decorated in murals.
Would you like to learn the language of walls and the way they communicated stories in Africa?
Each line, every shape, all the colours have a meaning.
Did you know that the rain washed away the painted wall murals and that they were renewed each year?
Not a single mural is ever the same!
The African Murals: Playful Walls workshops accompany the ongoing exhibition at the Museum: Traditional Murals of Africa, which shows the practice of painting houses that can be found across Africa. On the workshop we will show the way in which colours, drawings, reliefs and mosaics decorated the homes of the Igbo people (Nigeria), the Gurunsi (Burkina Faso and Ghana), Basotho and Ndbele (South Africa) peoples.
