Youth Day canvas

Akhona Madikane paints Laura Baschneggers hand yellow to make a handprint on the canvas.

The provincial Department of Social Development launched a “canvas of expression” at the bottom of Government Avenue, between Parliament and St George’s Cathedral, on Thursday June 15, to commemorate Youth Day on June 16. Social Development MEC Albert Fritz was the first to paint on the canvas and “Youth U Can!” was his message.
