For a long time, there’s been a stigma to South Africa’s townships.

The Maboneng Township Art Experience is changing that one home at a time – through the arts. This initiative changes township homes into galleries, bringing together, empowering and inspiring communities and artists. On this site, you can learn more about the Experience and our projects.

Maboneng is a SeSotho word for ‘A PLACE OF LIGHTS’, a name given to Alexandra Township situated in Johannesburg by its community after they called it ‘Dark City’ because of no electricity. Alexandra Township is where our project, the Maboneng Township Arts Experience was conceived.  

We are proud to be part of the mission to end poverty in townships by 2030. We will do this through the arts.
