Township Tours have been taken to a whole new level with the entry of the Khayelitsha Curated Routes Experience. They offer The Adventure Cycling Route, The Arts & Culture Route and The Nightlife in Khayelitsha Experience.
One of the highlights is Khayelitsha’s hottest up-and-coming galleries, Fugly Art Gallery. Founded by two young and passionate local artists, Yolanda Sihali and Nwabisa Nkonyana, the gallery aims to achieve three noble goals: to uplift the community by providing a platform for various art forms; to teach the community about art and to provide a space where visitors, locals, and artists can meet in the gallery space.
Another must is the Makukhanye Art Room, which highlights how the performing arts can positively influence the socio-economic issues experienced in the townships. Makukhanye Art Room is run by Theatre4Change, a non-profit group which works with a diverse range of community participants and artists in creating an artistic platform and educational opportunities for young people. Despite facing many challenges, Makukhanye Art Room was the 2017 winner of the Fleur du Cap Theatre Award for Innovation in Theatre.
