In May of 2013, a group of South African designers launched a celebration of the life of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela on the occasion of his 95th birthday by selecting 95 exceptional posters from around the world that honor his lifelong contribution to humanity. An independent team of volunteers, now known as the Mandela Poster Project Collective, solicited submissions, receiving more than 700 posters from designers in more than 70 countries. All submitters agreed to donate their posters to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust to be exhibited and reproduced in limited editions as part of a fundraising program to establish Africa’s third dedicated children’s hospital in Johannesburg, which is Mandela’s final legacy wish. For more information, see: nelsonmandelachildrenshospital.org.
The curated selection of 95 posters seeks to mirror the sentiments of South Africa’s beloved former president, who once stated, “A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.” The collection first went on public display on Nelson Mandela International Day on July 18, 2013. It is currently traveling to various venues in South Africa and abroad.
