Shipping container gallery, is it possible? We have been searching for a ways to a make income as artists, by doing what we love the most after seriously hitting rock bottom with experiences of being an artist living in Southern Africa, Botswana – Maun.
An idea turned into reality. Late November 2019 we managed to find a shipping container from an advert on Facebook. It took a week to sort out the transportation. Early December 2019 we then dug out holes, mixed concrete and cement to lay the foundations with a baby on my back. We were preparing for the delivery of the container as the purchase had been done. I didn’t know how labor intensive doing all that was, by the time we were done my muscles were aching. That was only just the beginning of hard work and sweat… please follow our journey on blog posts and social media handles.
