The Table of Hope Project is a Creatual in which members of a local community are invited to co-create and build a table. The table is made of local wood on which the participants write their hope for the future. As the wood passes the participants’ hands, it promotes awareness of the value of our natural resources.Previously, the Table of Hope Project was performed in South Africa and Ghana. We are currently requesting funding for the performance of a Table of Hope Project in Brazil. The expansion into Brazil is important in light of mass deforestation and environmental impact.

wood from the Capetown table has been taken off to act as a relay race baton
