About the project

Soulart foundation is a skill share project for the youth by the youth, based in Soweto, Johannesburg. We currently work with thee most progressive youth and we create multi-discipline art, furniture and accessories from upcycled materials.

We are at the frontline of tackling substance abuse, peer pressure and unemployment that leads the youth into irresponsible behavior. They also earn commission for their work that is sold.

We currently training emerging talent into designers and multi discipline artists who can operate a sewing machine and have knowledge in the whole production process and distribution. We distribute our products through retail around South African capital cities, social markets and online.

SKETCH BOOK made out of discarded boxes and office paper

Our next project is turning a dumping site into a recreational park that will host an Art Academy. This will allow us to move production out of our back yard studio and will bring more youth into the project. This will have a bigger impact on the community as well as reducing dumping sites and raising awareness of recycling.

Have a look at some images of our products below:
