Here’s a little bit about us…

It is time to think differently!

That’s what happens at The Thinking Fund, a creative arts project that raises funds to sponsor young minds to study Digital Arts.

The fund has three primary pillars:

1. To build confidence among young South Africans in marginalized communities through the direct teaching of creative thinking as a skill

2. To connect artists, ceramicists and printmakers to the world of education by proactively hosting art events and auctions

3. To deliver life skills and thinking skills training to school leavers, graduates and first jobbers to assist them in the transition into the world of work

In 2021 we invited the artists from Kommetjie Open Studies to turn a blank canvas into a fabulous work of art.

That year 20 artists completed 28 rabbits, which were successfully auctioned off by Candice Berman Fine Art Gallery. The funds were used to sponsor two students to study design at the Academy of Digital Arts in Cape Town.

In 2022 we partnered with the Affordable Fine Art Fair, Candice Berman Fine Art Gallery and artists affiliated with Open Studios Kommetjie and Owl Canvases underwent their artistic transformations.

We are expanding our horizons and building new partnerships.
