Africa meets Africa brings these artists’ knowledge into the classroom with unique arts-skills learning methodology, integrating visual arts, history and mathematics. For example, students do geometry with their hands, as they make beadwork and weave according to inherited southern African styles. In this exhibition cultural expression is contextualized in relation to past and present needs.
