This year’s UJ Alumni Exhibition honours Doctor Carol Hofmeyr, the founder of the Keiskamma Art Project Trust.
The Trust is a community organisation, based in Hamburg, a rural area in the Eastern Cape, which works to foster hope and offer support for the vulnerable. The Trust strives to address the challenges of widespread poverty and disease through holistic and creative programmes and partnerships.
The Keiskama Trust began as the Keiskama Art Project, created by doctor and artist, Hofmeyr, in response to the extreme poverty and high percentage of HIV/AIDS affected families in the area. The Keiskamma Art Project later became the Keiskamma Trust inclusive of an Art, Health and Education Programme. In 2006 Helen Vosloo, one of the country’s foremost classical musicians, founded the Keiskamma Music Academy as the fourth Trust programme.
