Selah means “pause and reflect.”
In 2010, Andrew Breitenberg founded Selah as a platform (and tag) for the creation of public art which appears primarily in the public spaces of the poor in Africa. The message of this work to those living in the margins is – you too have been seen, you too shall be heard.
In 2012 we opened a public studio-retail space in Cape Town as a way to engage in a dialogue which stands at the intersection of hope, activism and creativity. All proceeds from the physical shop and online store are reinvested in the vision and mission of Selah: to be a voice for the voiceless.
In 2015 we closed up our physical space in Cape Town and moved to New York City. We hope to see you beautiful wanderers on that side one day soon.
