KZNSA is a non-profit art gallery in Durban, South Africa. The gallery hosts exhibitions focusing on up-and-coming local artists needing assistance to launch their careers and has a craft shop that supports over 200 local crafters and independent makers by selling their product and working on product design with them. The gallery and shop employ 6 people. We also have a café that provides employment for 17 people. Many people think that the KZNSA is provided for by government, but we do not receive operational funding from municipal, provincial or national entities. If we do receive funding it must be used on projects and it does not cover our operating expenses. For this reason, we rely on income from the craft shop and café to keep our doors open.
With the exhibitions we also provide free education programmes, including school visits and online learning resources where students can participate in workshops.
Donations and funding is scarce at the best of times. Since the country has been in lockdown we have not been able to trade and cannot generate any turnover to pay overheads. We are asking for your much needed help to keep our wonderful staff employed and our doors open through this crisis. We must support local artists and crafters again, as well re-open our café serving amazing food and awesome coffee.
With your help we
can cover our overheads during lockdown and create an online shop to support
local artists and crafters by selling their work.
Your support, however
small, will help us immensely.
Be safe, and strength to all of you during this relentless pandemic. May we all rise up stronger and thrive once again.
