Sophiatown! Just west of Auckland Park in Johannesburg lies a suburb steeped in the political and social heritage of yesteryear, yet vibrant with people creating possibilities for tomorrow through culture, arts, training and ethical business.
Sophiatown the Mix brings people together in unusual spaces, connected to a peaceful garden, to inspire new possibilities.
You can hire the spaces to host meaningful events. Or take your pick as resident and visitor, from monthly live jazz with world-class musicians, matchless conversations, book launches and arts projects, a new music school, theatre, poetry, exhibitions and a walking tour of this historic suburb.
This unique mix in a real Jozi suburb will make your event or visit unforgettable.
Sophiatown the Mix is the social enterprise arm of the Trevor Huddleston CR Memorial Centre.
‘We offer spaces where innovation grows from conversation, where doing good is celebrated, and where dreams and inspiration draw on Sophiatown’s deep roots.’
