"It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another."

The Mandela Project was Tangle’s 2014 Discovery Project, inviting people from across South West England to take part in a range of creative activities to explore the ideas and purpose of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, writing their own creative statements in response to his vision for change.

During The Mandela Project, we asked people of all ages and from all walks of life – ‘what do you believe in?’

The statements on this interactive web page highlight a collection of ideas around how participants hope to effect change locally, nationally and globally.

Use the buttons on the interactive map to see a selection of the participants visions and some of the feedback received. To see all the vision statements from the over 1400 participants click here.
