After working in different townships in South Africa for over 4 years, providing over 100 scholarships for young creatives and bringing over 40 development workshops with top international and local artists to inspire these communities we decided to create a "state of the art" learning space, the first Bridges School. The aim of this space is to become a flag ship building for the community and a nest for local creatives to co crate a new future. Inspired in many of our experiences, the curriculum aims to bring a new level of awareness and resonance to local kids through a new pioneering educational model using music and art as the medium to teach other life skills. It will also bring to the community access to computers, a new recording studio, a yoga/ meditation room, a co working space and a new events space inspired by some amazing artists from the burn.
We have finalised the construction of the structure of the building and we are now raising money to make the space habitable and operational. This includes the final plumbing, toilets, electrics, painting and garden area and sums up a total of $ 30,000
After this the LAST phase will be equipping the space with computers, the gear for the recording studio, IT infrastructure, furniture and decoration, which we estimate in another $ 100,000.
Please humbly consider supporting us achieve this big milestone in the future of the organisation and the impact in the world.
