THE NALA PROJECT
is founded by long distance cyclist and artist André Pilz from Leipzig / Germany.
He is cycling from Cape Town to London via East and West Africa.
NALA: On the Way he is telling the story of NALA, an 8 years old South African girl who is following her dreams to travel beyond the mountains.
He shows NALA´s Journey through artworks (paintings, sculptures) which he is creating together with African artists in an unique art project.
The artworks are shown in several exhibitions in Africa and Europe. The benefit for the artists is to gain international exposure.
SADE: On his way, André is also collecting messages to SADE from her fans, because SADE inspired him to this journey and NALA was brought to life while listening to a SADE song. If you like her Music, you have the chance to write SADE a message in the Fan-book which André carried through Africa and when he reached London he will hand it over to SADE.
TOUR: You can see Photos of André´s and NALA´s cycling-tour through Africa.
At the moment they are back in Kassel / Germany to promote The NALA Project and searching Exhibition space in Germany.
