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 moved the whole show to USA(!) and Andrew enrolled in the Living School in Albuquerque, NM for a 2-year program in contemplative spiritual formation.
And in 2017, we launched a small publication called ‘Pilgrim Index’ which has its beginnings here, and will be in print this Spring!
