STUB001 final exhibition: Meet the young talents and celebrate their identities.
STUB001 is proud to present the artworks of the Ubuntu Academy students. Under artist SIT’s guidance they’ve worked for two weeks to find and visualise their unique identities. The design process included self-reflection, moodboards, collages with mixed materials… to ultimately create self-portraits.
The final exhibition showcases the process, portraits and a “wandering mural”. Limited number of prints will be on sale. And last but not least, we can’t wait to finally introduce you the Ubuntu Academy students.
Selected designs are also used by fashion label Kuyichi for the Summer 2015 collection, a limited t-shirt range co-created by the students and SIT. Last year’s co-created t-shirts are already on sale in Europe. SIT’s limited t-shirts with his self-portraits will already be available at the exhibit.
STUB001 is an official World Design Capital 2014 project #WDC304.

STUB is an inspiring example of a non-profit and for-profit partnership in which skills, talent, and profit are exchanged. All stakeholders share similar values and visions and collaborate in a design-focused adventure that merges art, entrepreneurship and social change. For the Ubuntu Academy it is an important step in becoming self-sustainable as 100% profit, generated through this collaboration, goes to the Ubuntu Academy Cape Town.
The STUB001 project includes workshops with students from the Ubuntu Academy, facilitated by Ubuntu Design. Artist SIT’s self-portrait will be used to inspire the students to create their own portrait, as part of the search to their own creative-identity. The students learn artistic design skills, while discovering ways to express themselves. All completed artworks shall be showcased to the public in a final exhibition on 18th March.
