  Maboneng Township Arts Experience
The Maboneng Township Arts Experience is a non-profit destination development initiative with community sustainability and development at its core. Its founder, Siphiwe Ngwenya, is one of many artists in South Africa who has faced numerous challenges in exhibiting his work and getting a foot into South Africa’s art industry. It’s Siphiwe’s own challenges that would eventually lead him towards looking at a creative way of transforming South Africa’s contemporary art scene, and also empowering women and youth in some of South Africa’s biggest and most impoverished townships.

  Ferreira Mine Stope
In the basement of the Standard Bank headquarters in downtown Joburg, is Ferreira's mine stope, one of the very first gold prospecting sites in the city. The long forgotten mine entrance was discovered in the 1980s during the construction of the Standard Bank building and it has since been preserved as a small museum. The stope is named for Ignatius Phillip Ferreira, a farmer, soldier and later a gold prospector, who also has a city district, Ferreirasdorp, named after him. A small exhibition illustrated by photographs and old maps details how the very first prospectors, including Ferreira, operated and there are also various pieces of old-fashioned mining equipment such as gas lamps and pickaxes.

  The Marabi Club
The Marabi Club is the home of superb food and drink accompanied by fine live jazz performances. In the 1920s and 1930s, the rise of the Doornfontein slumyards, created in the wake of one of the world’s richest gold rushes, gave rise to an urban culture known as ‘marabi’. As the foundation of this new culture, the music was energetic and improvisational. It was a lifestyle prompted by the need to escape the hardships of the working week – defined by illegal shebeens, where the fierce talk of politics was accompanied by the equally disruptive soundtrack of jazz.
