• Fugly Art Gallery

    PLEASE NOTE: Fugly Art Gallery has CLOSED DOWN. Founded by two young and passionate local artists, Fugly Art Gallery is one of Khayelitsha’s hottest up-and-coming galleries. They aim to achieve three noble goals: To uplift their community by providing a platform for various art forms; to teach the community about art and to provide a space where visitors, locals, and artists can meet in the gallery space. The talented founders of the Fugly Art Gallery in Khayelitsha are a force to be reckoned with. Nwabisa Nkonyana and Yolanda Rachel Sihlali are both passionate artists who love art and their community. They’ve seen a need for more art and art awareness in Khayelitsha and they are eager to answer the call. Since the gallery’s launch in December 2018, they’ve hosted monthly events and openings, exhibiting their work alongside the work of other gifted locals and international artists. An exciting addition to the art exhibitions is their live demonstrations and workshops. Nwabisa gives demonstrations and lessons in her field of expertise which is painting, drawing, and print making. She also curates the space. Yolanda does beadwork and her nimble fingers impresses visitors at live demonstrations. Both artists also have their work for sale Read more [...]

  • Isibane Se Afrika

    The Isibane Se Afrika choir will blow you away with their renditions of traditional and gospel songs, their energetic dance moves and their warm and welcoming introduction to township life. Join them for a tour of Khayelitsha to get a local perspective on the vibrant neightbourhood they call home and you’ll get a chance to sing and dance too. Andisiwe Mbunje Gaqa started the Isibane Se Afrika choir 18 years ago with a mission to empower, inspire, and uplift the youth of her community in Khayelitsha. Their choir is a choir for change and Isibane se Afrika means “The Light From Africa”. The choir has been winning hearts by regularly busking at the V&A Waterfront and performing across the world, most recently in Poland, waving the South African flag high. For Andisiwe township life is all about neighbours. People caring for each other and sharing and exchanging food, love, and their experiences. Isibane Se Afrika invites you into their neighbourhood so you can experience this fraternity first-hand. They take you on a tour to hotspots like Lookout Hill and a pre-school nearby owned by a caring father in the neighbourhood. They also share stories with you at Andisiwe’s mother’s garage Read more [...]
