In preparation for Nelson Mandela’s July 18 birthday, our friends at Circle Up Now made this impressive piece of aerial art today. The photo was taken followed by a workshop addressing the global hunger crisis, and took place in Johannesburg.

Circle Up Now is an exciting initiative integrating art and human rights activism. This summer, utilizing the unique experience of human aerial artwork, where thousands of people come together to form an image that can only be seen and photographed from the sky, two teams will produce a series of live global events and chronicle the experience to benefit the human rights movement and the organizations that fight for it on a daily basis.
