Streetwires Kawuleza Fund

Personal message

Asanda Yekiso, Wilbert Kamupira, Gabriel Soza...our community of over 40 artists at Streetwires need our support.

For twenty years, the artists of Streetwires have delighted people around the world with beautiful and pioneering handcrafted wire and bead art.

In twenty years time, it'll be wonderful to look back at a lifetime of creativity and artistic innovation that continued through the time of COVID. It's a 20/20 vision.  To do so, we're appealing to you, our community of friends, customers, clients and admirers of the artists and the work of Streetwires to walk with us through the next 3 months.

Not allowed to work under lockdown, our artists are in a frightening place, unable to buy the food they need or pay rent.

We are raising funds to give every artist a stipend for 3 months, our target is R300 000.

It was said when the Streetwires studios were born that we wouldn't last 5 years, yet here we are, and coming together, so we shall remain.

Art is a way of life for us, we hope you'll join us on the journey forward.

Please follow our progress here.

Funds raised will be transferred into Streetwires bank account from where it will be managed.

Kawuleza* (Kawuleza is an isiXhosa word that means quickly, chop chop, hurry up!)
