Painting an entire favela in Rio de Janeiro

We love colour, we know what it can do for people's lives. And we love it when people have big scary ideas that can make a real difference. The art team Haas&Hahn, working out of Holland have put together a Kickstarter to raise funds to plaster and paint an entire favela in Rio de Janeiro. (Favelas are large sprawling slums, similar to South African squatter camps).

It's a beautiful idea and one we would love to see in South Africa.

The Kickstarter is now closed, but you can check it out here.
