This article speaks to the history of Melkhoutfontein, the home of the Wasteland – Graced Land experience. The earliest drawing by a human was found in the Blombos cave in Stilbaai, near Melkhoutfontein South Africa. This ancient cultural history was the inspiration behind our The Awakening: PaintUp with Kamamma.
PaintUp Kamamma is an innovative project, developed with the community to create a sustainable, thriving tourist economy in South Africa’s Melkhoutfontein community. For this we utilize art, storytelling, re-enactment of history, humanity and cultural awakening. It is a ground breaking project of joining hands globally to facilitate development, restoration, beautification and development of crafters using crafts from resources in the community.
