Subcouncil 13 Arts and Culture Champions NPO started this petition to City of Cape Town and

Subcouncil 13 Arts and Culture Champions has turned an abandoned former creche that was used as a drug and criminal activity hotspot into what is now known as Philippi Arts Centre. The facility has been operating successfully for over 8 months providing programs like Physical Theatre, Drama, Dance, Choir, and Life Skills to the children of the community of Philippi. We have 15 volunteer operational staff and 13 facilitators that have been working for no salary, stipend, or any kind of compensation.

We have been engaging various City of Cape Town and the Department of Human Settlement and have applied for the leasing of the plot from the City of Cape Town. The process has been heavily delayed and poorly communicated with us. We have reached out to the office of the Mayor and representatives were sent o hear our story and we are constantly following up on progress to date.

We want to secure the future of the Philippi Arts Centre and make sure that this facility is leased to the Subcouncil 13 Arts and Culture Champions NPO that founded the project and continue to transform it with positivity and skills transfer programs.

By signing this petition you amplify our cry for help and the need for the City of Cape Town to intervene and assist with the leasing of this plot to Subcouncil 13 Arts and Culture Champions NPO - Reg. No. 198-330
