The Heroes Project: Graphic Narrative

Natural Justice's Heroes Project is an initiative started to revive the mythology and folklore of the Khoi-san as a spiritual and cultural relief to face their present day socio-political struggles. The Heroes Project phase 1 of the project started in July 2013 which led to the creation of a workshop model for teenagers aged between 13-15.

The workshop combined elements of theatre, dance, shadow puppetry and mythology to create a space for sharing personal stories and experiences. The idea for such a space came from the ancient story-telling culture of the Khoi-san, which is almost extinct. The space was intended to be a bridge between the reality of the personal stories to the mythology/ folklore of the Khoi-San. Read more about the Project.
