Alan Bruyns in the sculpture studio at the Community Arts Project (CAP), District Six, Cape Town, c 1982. Photographer unknown. Through stimulating creativity, CAP sought to develop the human in a society ravaged by apartheid. In a postapartheid society in which life is instrumentalised i.e. reduced to mere economic considerations, the CHR’s Factory of the Arts similarly seeks to nurture the human through creativity.

The CHR fellowship programme will continue in 2022 through online platforms and, where permitted, limited live events hosted in compliance with COVID-19 protocols. Please follow our events page for updates about events.
