Spieel Collective

Our name is derived from two words that mean both ‘to play’ and ‘mirror’ in Afrikaans. Our logo reflects the capacity of the arts to playfully transform a set concept, such as a word, into a symbol or metaphor with layered meanings. The ‘i’ in sp(i)eel has been put in brackets to symbolize the therapeutic nature of our organisation, which is to always hold the person, and his/her well-being at the core of our work.
