Sophiatown was home, safe haven and departing ground to some of the greatest artists, painters, writers and cultural giants of African literature, the likes of Miriam Tlali, Bloke Modisane, Can Themba, Lewis Nkosi, Gerard Sekoto, Jürgen Schadeberg and Don Mattera. Sophiatown has a great potential to be a hotbed of the next golden age and a cultural utopia that is aimed at every day anew, in this contemporary South Africa.

We are proud to have Dr. Jürgen Schadeberg’s patronage and support.
