The Equestrian Initiative:
Our latest initiative takes the form of an Equestrian Program, aiming to create a pathway for community members to participate in the equestrian economy. Through strategic partnerships and mentorship, we aspire to cultivate not just athletes but also entrepreneurs who can contribute meaningfully to this specialized sector.
Museum and Gallery Homes:
Central to our program is the establishment of museum and gallery homes that celebrate the rich history and promising future of equestrian arts in townships. We’re proud to announce that these spaces will be created in collaboration with Mr. Enos Mafokate, leveraging his extensive archive as a central repository of knowledge. These museum and gallery homes will serve as vibrant hubs, showcasing not only the history of equestrian arts but also contemporary expressions through art forms.
Archive of Mr. Mafokate:
Mr. Enos Mafokate’s archive, a treasure trove of equestrian history, will be at the heart of our initiative. It will serve as a central resource for research, education, and inspiration. This archive will not only preserve the legacy of equestrian arts but will also guide aspiring athletes and entrepreneurs on their journey.
Aqcustrian Themed Artforms:
To infuse a local touch, the gallery homes around the equestrian center in Soweto will feature equestrian-themed artforms created by local artists. This integration of community-generated art not only supports local talent but also brings a unique and authentic flavor to the spaces.
Why It Matters:
The Sports & Arts Tourism Program with a focus on equestrian arts is not just about riding horses; it’s about riding the wave of opportunities that this industry offers. By combining sports, arts, and travel, we are not only creating athletes but fostering a sense of entrepreneurship that aligns with the unique cultural tapestry of our townships.
