Artists against aids.

Artists came together at the National Art Gallery of Namibia earlier this year to pay tribute to the late Dr. Lucy Banda, a pioneer in providing counseling and treatment to people living with HIV and Aids. This led to the production of a calendar dedicated to the memory of Dr Banda and her commitment to understand this disease and treat its victims with love, care and respect while fighting her own battle against cancer.

Fourteen artists donated their work for this calendar, and many other people contributed in different ways under the coordination of Katutura-based artist Natasha Beukes to make this project possible.

The calendar reaches out beyond the borders of Namibia by including the annual public holidays of all SADC countries. It covers the period 2003 -- 2004 and will thus raise awareness about Aids while adorning our home and office walls for many months to come.
