About the organization

Maboneng Township Arts Experience

MTAE was created by a social entrepreneur, in search of sustainable solution to the problems of unemployment and a lack of galleries within the townships in South Africa. MTAE is a non-profit social enterprise that creates training and income opportunities for talented artists and like-minded homeowners who transform their homes into gallery homes.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Maboneng Township Arts Experience.
