Iconic landmarks around the world were turned red in a global display of unity on July 20 2018 – Special Olympics South Africa flicked the switch and turned the Nelson Mandela statue red in a global display of unity on July 20 as part of the Special Olympics 50th Anniversary Celebration. The act represents the dawn of the Inclusion Revolution—Special Olympics’ mission to end discrimination against people with intellectual disabilities (ID) worldwide and create inclusive communities.

In addition to the Nelson Mandela statue, more than 70 landmarks worldwide participated in the Light Up for Inclusion initiative, creating a global display of tolerance, respect and celebration of difference.

Prosound were on site to turn the Nelson Mandela Statue red, as part of this great worldwide initiative.

The Griven fixture is a permanent installation in Nelson Mandela Square, lighting up the statue at night. Prosound were contacted by PPA and Associates to provide a solution to light the statue, which, during the day is a popular Instagram hotspot. With the statue now lit up at night, visitors to Nelson Mandela Square have more opportunity to share there moments with Madiba.
