This event brings together our global community of friends, supporters, and artists, with participation from local talents in Cape Town. Over seven years, the camp at Afrikaburn has successfully sponsored more than 50 individuals to attend the burn, generating essential funds to sustain the operational costs of the Bridges Academy in the Langa township (Cape Town, South Africa).
In the year 2023, the creative concept aimed to construct a stage resembling a miniature township arranged in a circle, symbolizing Ubuhlanti (kraal), a sacred space deeply embedded in South African local cultures. Surrounding the Kraal are ten structures, each highlighting different aspects of South African township communities and culture.
