Facilitator Kayley Jane says: “We at COMMUNITY ZA aim to be a people, and a space, that nurtures the creative culture in our local community.

“Our goal is to partner with local artists, poets, musicians, film makers, performers and the like, and in doing so, expand the creative space in our beloved city. We hope to be relevant to our current evolving society through our exhibitions and events. Alongside this core value, we have set out to support local businesses in whatever capacity that we can.

(“Wisdom” - work by Wayne Richards)

“We believe in nurturing the creative, choosing a business-style of collaboration, and further exploring what it means to function as a community. We are open only during exhibitions from 09h00 to 16h00 weekdays. Most of our exhibitions launch on a Thursday evening, however, where we enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee together.”
