Brothers and Sisters Art Organisation is a community-based association located in the deep rural lands of Makhaza, within one of South Africa’s largest townships Khaleystisa. The Organisation was founded in May of 2021, aiming to provide the township youth with an opportunity to expand their dreams and goals. It aimed to remove teenagers from the dangerous crime within township life and offer them a safe space to express their talents in many different aspects of art. We specialise in traditional and contemporary African dance, drama, and music.

Khayelitsha is a township based in Cape Town South Africa and is notoriously known for its high crime and drug rates, especially amongst the youth. The choir is a collection of both young women and men, who are at the forefront of this violence and hardship. Many of these harsh stories have been shared amongst the group. Members have witnessed the rape and murder of their loved ones, however, this hardship has allowed us to grow together and become one family, stitched together with a passion for art. “It is an organisation built on heartbreaks and hardships, all mended into one format that we call art” as one of the leaders describes it. Art is what allows us to grow and move forward as one. It allows us to reach for our dreams and travel the world to showcase our talents. It allows us to not just only inspire the youth of South Africa, but to inspire the youth of Africa and the world.

What we need from you.

Essentially because of us being a relatively new organisation we don’t have the finance to expand our horizons. We, therefore, plead for you to invest in our organisation so it can flourish to its true potential. Brothers and Sisters Art Organisation need your help today! Firstly, Transport is a huge issue for us as we don’t have any means of private transportation. This has caused problems as South Africa’s public transport is unsafe and unreliable. Due to this, we have missed performances and other opportunities in the past due to the lack of efficient transport. We therefore would need funding to allow us to organize private minibus transport in and around Cape Town in order to attend performances and rehearsals. Secondly, We have run into many problems with our current rehearsal space, as it is located within an old church in Khalyestisa. It is firstly a very unsafe area, especially for young people, and a handful of our members have already been mugged or robbed just outside the rehearsal venue. We, therefore, are wanting to gather funding in order to rent out a rehearsal space in a safer area of Cape Town. We believe that this is a very important step as it will make a major impact in improving both our music quality and content. Ultimately, we aim to receive funding to further our careers in the art industry. We believe that these next steps are crucial in order for us to have a worldwide impact truly. We need your help and guidance today, in order to create our future tomorrow.
