IEB Art Competition


Theme of the IEB Art Competition: Education – The Practice of Compliance and the Practice of Creative Freedom.

The artwork should be inspired by the following quote from Paulo Freire:

“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the young generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity
it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.”

DSS learners took on the challenge of interpreting text into picture.
