Wildlife in South Africa is abundant, with almost 300 mammal species! The term ‘Big Five’ is used to describe the power and strength of the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion, and rhino. In this workshop, families will have the opportunity to create animal masks or puppets of their own and then have the option to create short vignettes with their animals. Each animal family will face a small conflict and then in the spirit of democracy and equality, show us how you come to a resolution together. Participants will have the opportunity to present to each other. This workshop will be led by local South African artist and educator Dina Kaplan and Johannesburg visual artist Thabang Lehobye and is part of the Mandela exhibit at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
