Portraiture and true stories of hope as told by the living descendants

Not many people know that, upon landing at the Cape of Good Hope, slaves were stripped of everything – even their names. As property, many were renamed after the calendar month in which they arrived.

Tragically, the history of South African slavery has been all but forgotten. Created in partnership with the Iziko Slave Lodge Museum in Cape Town, the Slave Calendar holds the portraiture and true stories of hope as told by the living descendants of those who had their first-ever possession taken from them: their names.

Because not a day should pass when we don’t remember our past.

Unlike traditional communication agencies, we get the chance to be so much closer to our consumers. Creativity developed by us is to be touched, felt, and interacted with by people. We have the opportunity to create for the most free-spirited channels."

Letícia Arslanian, General Manager, Rio de Janeiro
