Townships Into Towns Virtual Reality Experience

The townships/neighbourhoods have been in a pressured situation for a long time now. Women and children have been growing up in stringent social dynamics that no human being has to endure. 

Through our destination development work we have confirmed the following: Because you are poor, it does not mean that you can’t change how you perceive yourself. And that because you don’t have money doesn’t mean you can’t change your community. Finally, because the community is perceived to be in a bad part of town it doesn’t mean people from all over the world would not love to come visit.

Building townships into towns is a task that will take not only physical but mental health. To remove the stereotype that townships cannot be changed, both by their own community members and their supporters, innovative ideas have to be created to boost the positive  curiosity of willing minds all over the world.

It is this reason that the Maboneng Township Arts Experience has created a 360 Virtual Reality Experience to assist people, both from communities and those visiting, on how to re imagine the community and its immediate environment differently.

Experience being immersed in the very first 360 Virtual Reality Experience of a Township turning into a Town one gallery home at a time.

  • Experience the tour from home, at school or even your place of entertainment.
  • All virtual experiences are child friendly and educational.
  • Part of the proceeds go towards the subject/s of the experience.
