AWARD ANNOUNCEMENTMAIL & GUARDIAN, JULY 2014
Each year, the Mail & Guardian release a special edition acknowledging 200 young South Africans, aged 35 and under, who contribute to the diversity and upliftment of our beautiful country with bucketloads of talent, dreams and drive.
“They’re people who can do whatever they put their mind to, using the tools and opportunities granted to us by the technology-driven era we find ourselves inhabiting, and who can switch interests and impetus whenever they see the need… they inspire us to do stuff that’s out of the ordinary, even if it’s based on the ordinary.” – Chris Roper, Editor-in-chief, Mail & Guardian
Shannon Hope was named amongst the Mail & Guardian 200 Young Africans 2014 for Arts & Culture, in recognition of her passion and commitment to not only “living the dream”, but living who you truly are.
Currently on a break from fulltime touring, Shannon Hope is utilising her other talents in digital creative spaces… but there will be another studio album, and some exclusive performances every now and then. It’s not over. It’s just different.
