Our Team

Jean  lives in Cape Town, from a family of intricately interwoven ancestries, despite and because of apartheid. He grew up within the struggle, his parents imprisoned and exiled. Not working directly with clients and participants, Jean is creator of Kopanya’s design elements and artwork, and provides critical conceptualisation for Kopanya’s unpacking of identities and oppression. He studied politics at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, film at the University of Cape Town and film and art at New York University.
