German art students from the University of Duisburg-Essen, in conjunction with The Village of Dreams, presented a unique tape art project on a public wall in Jeffreys Bay on Saturday, March 26, to highlight the ongoing drought across the region.

Through their artwork – an integration of the water shortage in the region, as well as the integration between humans, land and sea – they wanted to address the global struggles about water issues, and more specifically, the adverse effects these had on the community.

The art project formed part of their visit to Kouga from March 24 to 28.

The students also visited Kouga Municipality and the Shell Museum in Jeffreys Bay, as well as the grave of Sarah Baartman, in Hankey and the construction site of the new education centre.
