The Stanford Creative Works Project, based in Stanford in the Western Cape, promotes a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment for children and young adults to explore their creative potential. The Stanford Creative Works Projects is a community based, not-for-profit organisation founded on the belief that access to quality art and cultural education for all people is fundamental for the growth of healthy, wholesome and aware individuals and communities.

DK Arts is committed to promoting the awareness of contemporary South African art and encouraging professional skills in writing, the creation of art and arts administration and to promoting an understanding of, and skills in, creative communication. We are also dedicated to providing support for arts educators. To this end, we run various programmes including internship opportunities, a teacher support and library-building service, the Stanford Creative Works outreach programme for early childhood development, and regular educational events at our venues in Johannesburg.
